Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-495) Join of a table with ThriftSerDe of complex columns will fail
Date Tue, 19 May 2009 05:02:45 GMT


Zheng Shao commented on HIVE-495:

There are 3 approaches to fix this:

1. Use fully-blown map/struct/array format everywhere. In this solution, users will see the
types of complex columns fully-blown instead of a java class, which may not be wanted.
2. Use 2 type strings: internal type string, and display type string. This will make sure
users will see types of complex columns as before, but it makes the code more convoluted.
3. Make our TypeInfoParser capable of parsing Java class names. If the TypeInfoParser encounters
a Java class name, it will use the ReflectionObjectInspector to get the fully-blown TypeInfo

I am going to take approach 3.

> ThriftSerDe exposes its fields using java class names. LazySerDe requires fully-blown
map/struct/array format.
