Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-571) add ability to rename a column.
Date Tue, 22 Dec 2009 21:10:29 GMT


Prasad Chakka commented on HIVE-571:

if we can support changing of the column type in other alter table statements (REPLACE COLUMNS),
why not support it here? also why not exactly support the mysql syntax

CHANGE [COLUMN] old_col_name new_col_name column_definition
        [FIRST|AFTER col_name]

atleast we should support changing the comment.

> currently only way to rename a column is to use 'REPLACE COLUMNS' which can be cumbersome
if the table has lots of columns.
