Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-143) Remove the old Metastore
Date Tue, 09 Dec 2008 15:22:44 GMT


Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-143:

Not hdfs based, but the old one is based on the local file system.

It can potentially be removed, though that warrants a discussion here. There are some fairly
significant pieces of functionality missing from the old one as we are not actively developing
that metastore. However, if someone feels that they can find potential use for it and would
want to develop it further, then we could just keep it around in the code.

> It is my understanding that there are two metastores, one HDFS based that isn't being
used anymore and one new based on SQL databases. This causes some confusion and extra work
for new developers, myself included. Am I correct in thinking that the old Metastore won't
be used anymore and could be removed?
