Subject [jira] Updated: (HIVE-1517) ability to select across a database
Date Thu, 10 Feb 2011 01:07:00 GMT


Siying Dong updated HIVE-1517:

    Attachment: HIVE-1517.3.patch

Modify based on Carl's previous patch:
1. fix concurrency issue but locking DB for every table too
2. fix CREATE TABLE AS and CREATE TABLE LIKE. Also, CREATE TABLE AS to share the same codes
to generate default path as CREATE TABLE
4. fix the same table names in different databases in the same query. (PartitionPruner's key's
5. fix character escaping problem.
6. fix TABLE ANALYZE to mistakely allow
7. fix DynamicSerDe just to get unit test pass.
8. lots of test case results changes, since in DESCRIBE EXTENDED, table names are printed
to be instead of tab. I found the possible way not to print "default" to make
less change to test outputs is more risky. So I didn't try that. But I ever implemented it
on my machine and make sure those test output modifications are right.

Some issues:
1. I didn't figure out the necessity to modify SemanticAnalyzer.processTable() not to use
aliasIndex in Carl's patch, so I revert them.
2. DESCRIBE a foreign table is not supported and we don't give good error message.
3. `` is not blocked so far since I found it's a pretty complicated issue and might
need more thinking.
4. UnparseTranslator becomes a little bit urgly now to unescape identifiers. I found it's
really hard to keep Carl's syntax rules and still support it in a clean way. Maybe as a follow-up
to make DB and table two different tokens, instead of parsing '' to semantic analyzer.

I'm still running test suites from the beginning to the end. There still can be something
