Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1918) Add export/import facilities to the hive system
Date Fri, 21 Jan 2011 21:41:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1918?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12984952#action_12984952

Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-1918:
---------------------------------------

If partition currently only has one constructor I do not think we add a second constructor,
just change it and break the old compatibility. If we do add partParams we should have DDL
statements to view and modify these. For a long time there were many things that were added
in the create table such as InputFormat or OutputFormat and we had no way to view or modify
these besides going directly to the JDBC and changing them. I am not sure if this is the case
here, but I do not think we should be adding fields that are not completely manageable.

> 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 http://wiki.apache.org/pig/Howl/HowlImportExport
for these details.
