Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-734) problem in dealing with null
Date Sat, 08 Aug 2009 03:58:14 GMT


Ning Zhang commented on HIVE-734:

In the failing query, there is no column corresponding to null (select null from tt), so the
semantic analyzer doesn't know the type of the NULL, therefore it is VOID type. That's why
JavaVoidObjectInspector needs to be created. It is the similar that in (select 2 from tt),
An JavaIntegerObjectInspector is needed for the constant 2.
