Subject [jira] Created: (HIVE-360) Generalize the FileFormat Interface in Hive

Generalize the FileFormat Interface in Hive

                 Key: HIVE-360
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-360
             Project: Hadoop Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Zheng Shao

Currently the FileFormat support in Hive is not generalized - we do "if ... else" to support
TextFileFormat and SequenceFileFormat. There is no way to support a 3rd one without changing
the "if...else" structure. We should make an interface for the FileFormat need for Hive.

The OutputFileFormat interface that Hive requires will contain one more method than the Hadoop
OutputFileFormat - create a File with a specific name.

Hive.g:409 (Hive.g already supports the custom file format but DDLSemanticAnalyzer.java is
not recognizing it yet

Please add the handling of TOK_TABLEFILEFORMAT here:
        case HiveParser.TOK_TBLSEQUENCEFILE:

Please add the handling of custom outputFormat here by adding a new interface (and cast the
user-provided file format to that interface), instead of doing "if ... else"
      if(outputFormat instanceof IgnoreKeyTextOutputFormat) {
        finalPath = new Path(Utilities.toTempPath(conf.getDirName()), Utilities.getTaskId(hconf)
                             Utilities.getFileExtension(jc, isCompressed));
