Subject [jira] Created: (HIVE-207) Change SerDe API to allow skipping unused columns

Change SerDe API to allow skipping unused columns
-------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HIVE-207
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-207
             Project: Hadoop Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Query Processor, Serializers/Deserializers
            Reporter: David Phillips


A deserializer shouldn't have to deserialize columns that are never used by the query processor.
 A serializer shouldn't have to examine unused columns that are known to always be null.

As an example, we store data as a Protocol Buffer structure with ~60 fields.  Running a "select
count(1)" currently requires deserializing all fields, which includes checking if they exist
and formatting the data appropriately.  This is expensive and unnecessary.
