Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1847) option of continue on error
Date Thu, 23 Dec 2010 11:30:07 GMT


Thiruvel Thirumoolan commented on HIVE-1847:

@Namit, i wasn't clear.

The param "hive.cli.errors.ignore" already exists and does what I mentioned above. Could not
find any related JIRA other than source code (

$ cat test_error.q 
drop table does_not_exist;
create table incomplete_syntax(a, string, );
create table invites(foo int, bar string);

$ hive -hiveconf hive.cli.errors.ignore=true -f test_error.q 
Time taken: 0.573 seconds
FAILED: Parse Error: line 2:32 cannot recognize input ',' in column type

Time taken: 3.143 seconds

Would u like anything else to be covered as part of this JIRA?

> In "hive -f <script>", if any sql/command fails in that script than hive exists
with exit status -1, without continuing the remaining hive commands.
> Sometimes it is better to continue the script even during errors. 
> For example, if a hive sql script contains many drop table commands, the command would
exit when it could not find a table. But in this case, it is preferable to continue dropping
remaining tables
