Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-309) FunctionRegistry should allow loading UDFs and UDAFs from property file
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2009 01:37:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-309?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12681136#action_12681136

Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-309:
------------------------------------

sorry to chime in a bit late on this but I was out on vaccation.

I think a better place to store this is the metastore as I think the issue here is to allow
third parties to write their own udfs which are persistent. We do have the ability to create
temporary UDF mappings. I am right in my understanding??

> FunctionRegistry.java hard code all UDF, UDAF definitions in a static initializer.  There
is no way to add new functions without directly modifying this file.  
> FunctionRegistry SHOULD look for a property file in which new functions and their implementations
can be specified.  This will allow third parties to extend hive without maintaining patches
against the codebase.
