Subject [jira] Created: (HIVE-1918) Add export/import facilities to the hive system
Date Mon, 17 Jan 2011 15:49:52 GMT
Add export/import facilities to the hive system

                 Key: HIVE-1918
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Query Processor
            Reporter: Krishna Kumar

This is an enhancement request to add export/import features to hive.

With this language extension, the user can export the data of the table - which may be located
in different hdfs locations in case of a partitioned table - as well as the metadata of the
table into a specified output location. This output location can then be moved over to another
different hadoop/hive instance and imported there.  

This should work independent of the source and target metastore dbms used; for instance, between
derby and mysql.

For partitioned tables, the ability to export/import a subset of the partition must be supported.

Howl will add more features on top of this: The ability to create/use the exported data even
in the absence of hive, using MR or Pig. Please see
for these details.
