Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-309) FunctionRegistry should allow loading UDFs and UDAFs from property file
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2009 01:21:50 GMT


Namit Jain commented on HIVE-309:

Looks good - I had some minor comments:

Instead of making property file dependent on system property org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.FunctionRegistry.propertyfile,
would it be a good idea to make it a 
configurable parameter with the default being in the configuration directory.
The users can overwrite this file or add a new one somewhere else,
and point to the new file.

Also, it would be great it you can add a dummy property file with some UDF and UDAF for testing.

> hard code all UDF, UDAF definitions in a static initializer.  There
is no way to add new functions without directly modifying this file.  
> FunctionRegistry SHOULD look for a property file in which new functions and their implementations
can be specified.  This will allow third parties to extend hive without maintaining patches
against the codebase.
