Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-591) create new type of join ( 1 row for a given key from multiple tables)
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2009 21:22:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-591?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12725357#action_12725357
] 

Raghotham Murthy commented on HIVE-591:
---------------------------------------

It might be better to associate the keys with the tables explicitly instead of implicitly
via ordering. How about something like:

SELECT ... FROM UNIQUEJOIN A(expr_with_A_cols), B(expr_with_B_cols), C(expr_with_C_cols) WHERE
...

expr_with_<TAB>_cols will be the join key for the corresponding <TAB>

> It will be useful to support a new type of join:
> say:
> select .. from JOIN TABLES (A,B,C) WITH KEYS (A.key, B.key, C.key) where ....
> The semantics are that for a given key only 1 row is created - nulls are present for
the the tables which do not contain a row for that key.
> There is no limit on the number of tables, the number of keys should be the same as the
number of tables.
