Subject Re: JDO upgrade issue with HIVE-1176
Date Fri, 25 Jun 2010 03:28:58 GMT
Paul explained one symptom in HIVE-1435.

For the other, the way to repro it is to start from a clean checkout  
from before HIVE-1176 was committed, build there and run build/dist/ 
bin/hive to init the metastore.  Then svn update to the tip of trunk,  
build again, and run hive CLI again; this time you will hit a startup  
error when it tries to modify the existing Derby database.

I think Paul's HIVE-1435 patch will resolve both.
