Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1359) Unit test should be shim-aware
Date Wed, 26 May 2010 20:55:38 GMT


John Sichi commented on HIVE-1359:

Regarding proposed change #1, let's keep the test include/exclude specifications in a separate
test-config.xml (imported from build.xml or whatever) to make maintenance easier.

Regarding proposed change #2, let's try to keep conf duplication to a minimum where possible.
 In an HBase core-site.xml file, I saw this syntax used to pull in additional configuration
overlay; not sure if that works in Hive conf files too:
<xi:include href="core-site-custom.xml" xmlns:xi="" />

Regarding proposed change #3, the user should not need to do this explicitly when running
ant test unless they want to override, right?  It should happen automatically based on the
Hadoop version chosen.

Regarding proposed change #4, what we actually want is the ability to declare a subset of
tests as needing minimr and run them that way by default with ant test (no -D required by
the person running the tests, although internally we will set the property as part of invoking
the test).  We can take this up separately in HIVE-117; just want to make the requirements
clear here.

> Some features in Hive only works for certain Hadoop versions through shim. However the
unit test structure is not shim-aware in that there is only one set of queries and expected
outputs for all Hadoop versions. This may not be sufficient when we will have different output
for different Hadoop versions. One example is CombineHiveInputFormat wich is only available
from Hadoop 0.20. The plan using CombineHiveInputFormat and HiveInputFormat may be different.
Another example is archival partitions (HAR) which is also only available from 0.20.
