Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1918) Add export/import facilities to the hive system
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 15:45:57 GMT


Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-1918:

But I am not adding new aspects to either model, so if indeed we need to address current manageability
gaps, should they not be addressed via another enhancement request, rather than this one,
which aims simply to add export/import facilities?
This depends on the lag time between the feature getting added and the enhancement being added.
With wishful thinking the two events will be close, but history does not always agree. Management
becomes more important as different people begin using the metastore for different purposes.
I believe if we add any feature support to manage it completely with DML is mandatory. Currently
the metastore is changing for security. import-export, and indexes if each of these features
are only half manageable at time X this will make releases awkward and half functional.

> 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.

even in the absence of hive, using MR or Pig. Please see
for these details.
