Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-143) Remove the old Metastore
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2008 19:04:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-143?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12655318#action_12655318

Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-143:

A number of functions for partitions and type are no ops in the file based metastore. Look
at HiveMetaStoreClient.java, HiveMetaStore.java (RDBMS based metastore) and MetaStoreClient.java
and MetaStore.java (File based metastore) to see the differences.

I would wait for Pete and Prasad to be back (they will be back next week) before phasing this

My vote is to phase the File based one out but we should hear from those two, specially from
Pete who did the original File based metastore.

> It is my understanding that there are two metastores, one HDFS based that isn't being
used anymore and one new based on SQL databases. This causes some confusion and extra work
for new developers, myself included. Am I correct in thinking that the old Metastore won't
be used anymore and could be removed?
