Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-558) describe extended table/partition output is cryptic
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2010 23:24:17 GMT

Namit Jain commented on HIVE-558:
---------------------------------

Thiruvel, thanks a lot for picking up this one.
This will be extremely helpful.

Instead of hardcoding in MetaDataFormatUtils, it might be a good idea to get the schema from
the decsriptor.
For eg, DescTableDesc, ShowTablesDesc etc. all contain a schema - this way if the schema changes
in future,
your code will continue to work

> describe extended table prints out the Thrift metadata object directly. The information
from it is not easy to read or parse. Output should be easily read and can be simple parsed
to get table location etc by programs.
