Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-655) Add support for user defined table generating functions
Date Fri, 13 Nov 2009 23:53:39 GMT


Raghu Murthy commented on HIVE-655:

There was an alternate syntax to TRANSFORM.

MAP columnlist USING mapscript AS newcolumnlist
FROM tablename ) a
REDUCE a.newcolumnlist USING reducescript

IIRC we later decided to just use TRANSORM for both map and reduce.  
The lateral view syntax is more expressive. But I think it makes it  
simpler to specify udtf in select clause if it's the only thing  
specified, similar to transform.

> Provide a way for users to add a table generating function, i.e., functions that generate
multiple rows from a single input row. Currently, the only way to do it is via the TRANSFORM
clause which requires streaming the data.
