Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1364) Increase the maximum length of SERDEPROPERTIES values (currently 767 characters)
Date Thu, 17 Jun 2010 03:28:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1364?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12879648#action_12879648
] 

John Sichi commented on HIVE-1364:
----------------------------------

I'm not sure we need to use the deprecation approach.  In Java land, it's all just String
regardless of the underlying character precision in the DB.

For existing metastores, people are already going to need to run upgrade SQL commands against
their metastore DB's when upgrading to 0.6 because of the new support for views.  We can just
add on to those scripts.

> The value component of a SERDEPROPERTIES key/value pair is currently limited
> to a maximum length of 767 characters. I believe that the motivation for limiting the
length to 
> 767 characters is that this value is the maximum allowed length of an index in
> a MySQL database running on the InnoDB engine: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=13315
> * The Metastore OR mapping currently limits many fields (including SERDEPROPERTIES.PARAM_VALUE)
to a maximum length of 767 characters despite the fact that these fields are not indexed.
> * The maximum length of a VARCHAR value in MySQL 5.0.3 and later is 65,535.
> * We can expect many users to hit the 767 character limit on SERDEPROPERTIES.PARAM_VALUE
when using the hbase.columns.mapping serdeproperty to map a table that has many columns.
> I propose increasing the maximum allowed length of SERDEPROPERTIES.PARAM_VALUE to 8192.
