Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-134) job conf being passed to serde (initialize)
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2008 20:42:44 GMT


Raghotham Murthy commented on HIVE-134:

Why does adding an interface to specify required jobconf options in the serde make it harder
to write serdes? Its about documenting what is required by the serde. It will be make it more
clear for the serde writer (to specify) as well as the serde user (to figure out) what runtime
parameters are required. 

The problem right now is that there is no easy way for a user/developer to figure out what
the configurable parameters are for using a serde. Of course, since we have only a handful
of serdes this is not an urgent issue right now.

> Currently, job conf is being passed to serde - serde should not need job conf. Anyway,
properties is being passed around which can contain any name/value pairs.
