Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (HIVE-912) table name in DDL should be case-insensitive

One reason why it was not done this was to report user errors in the case that user typed in.
I suppose it is not that much of reason

Subject: [jira] Commented: (HIVE-912) table name in DDL should be case-insensitive

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-912?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12773592#action_12773592

Ning Zhang commented on HIVE-912:

I think most DDL cases works fine (case insensitive). I have manually tested some and all
works.  But I've seen diffs in the POSTHOOK when running unittests. Some examples are uniquejoin.q.out
    [junit] < POSTHOOK: Output: default@t1
    [junit] ---
    [junit] > POSTHOOK: Output: default@T1

My change will be to convert table names to lower case in the createTableDesc at the very
beginning of analyzing DDL statement. This will guarantee all code paths using the createTableDesc
will see lower cased table names.
