Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-287) count distinct on multiple columns does not work
Date Mon, 24 May 2010 19:06:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-287?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12870789#action_12870789

Namit Jain commented on HIVE-287:

Overall looks good, some minor comments:

1. This should be independent of COUNT - so, all basically all aggregation functions should
be supported with DISTINCT.
    For eg: select avg(distinct c1,c2) from T

 and so on.

2. It would be a good idea to maintain some compatibility for the existing interface - so,
can we add another method to UDAFResolver, which
    has the new API - and a common class which invokes the default implementation, that would
be better.

3. Follows from 1 - more tests are needed
