Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1530) Include hive-default.xml and in hive-common JAR
Date Fri, 13 Aug 2010 07:39:18 GMT


Joydeep Sen Sarma commented on HIVE-1530:

don't dis-allow hive.* options not specified in HiveConf. reason is that hive is extensible
at various points via custom code and those have access to config object and installs may
want to set variables specific to their plugins etc. (we shouldn't be in the business of telling
them what not to name them)

>                 Key: HIVE-1530
>                 URL:
>             Project: Hadoop Hive
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Configuration
>            Reporter: Carl Steinbach
> hive-common-*.jar should include hive-default.xml and,
> and similarly hive-exec-*.jar should include The
> hive-default.xml file that currently sits in the conf/ directory should be removed.
> Motivations for this change:
> * We explicitly tell users that they should never modify hive-default.xml yet give them
the opportunity to do so by placing the file in the conf dir.
> * Many users are familiar with the Hadoop configuration mechanism that does not require
*-default.xml files to be present in the HADOOP_CONF_DIR, and assume that the same is true
