Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-454) Support escaping of ; in strings in cli
Date Thu, 06 Aug 2009 13:55:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-454?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12740073#action_12740073

Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-454:

Digging into this some more it seems that the query processor and cli driver would have to
work together in a different way.

As of now the CLIDriver is physically splitting on ';'  it can not tell the difference between
';' and '/;'. My patch adds some logic to detect '/;' and unescape it before passing to qp.run(String).

Right now we can argue that the CliDriver has an implicit 'autocommit=true'. We can make this
an explicit variable. with autocommit='false'  the query processor would hold a StringBuffer
or a queue of query strings. 'commit ' ; would cause QP to run each query in its queue.

This is a non-trivial change. If we add this feature we can set autocommit=true so the default
behavior does not change. For no though my patch has a fairly way to deal with this problem.
