Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1530) Include hive-default.xml and hive-log4j.properties in hive-common JAR
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2010 16:45:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1530?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12914528#action_12914528

Philip Zeyliger commented on HIVE-1530:
---------------------------------------

+1.  I'm a big fan of this change.

We've repeatedly had customers using an old or weird hive-default or non-existent hive-default,
and that's caused quite tricky to debug issues.

> hive-common-*.jar should include hive-default.xml and hive-log4j.properties,
> and similarly hive-exec-*.jar should include hive-exec-log4j.properties. The
> hive-default.xml file that currently sits in the conf/ directory should be removed.
> Motivations for this change:
> * We explicitly tell users that they should never modify hive-default.xml yet give them
the opportunity to do so by placing the file in the conf dir.
> * Many users are familiar with the Hadoop configuration mechanism that does not require
*-default.xml files to be present in the HADOOP_CONF_DIR, and assume that the same is true
for HIVE_CONF_DIR.
