Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-127) fetch task does not pass the job to the serde in initialize
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2008 19:18:44 GMT


Raghotham Murthy commented on HIVE-127:


Accepting for now.

In general, it seems to be a bad idea to provide a jobconf to the serde. We are already passing
a Properties object which is arbitrary key-value pairs. If there are parameters in the jobconf
required by the serde, they should be extracted from the jobconf and then inserted into the
Properties. This will make code flow much more easy to understand. Now, we are passing an
opaque object (jobconf) with arbitrary key-value pairs which can be set anywhere in the code.
Can you file another jira to remove jobconf from the SerDe interface?

> Fetch task passes a null job to the serde during initialize - it should not assume that
the serde does not need the job.
> This assumption is valid for MetadataTypedColumnSetSerde, but need not be valid always
