Subject Query regarding Metastore(Derby) SDS table data
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2011 10:22:45 GMT
Hi all,

 While creating hive table using create table command, the code flow will
also insert the HDFS location in SDS table present in Derby

For Example on executing:-
create table sample(rate int) stored as textfile;

The SDS table (meta table present in Derby) contains following entry
corresponding to Hive table sample like

say 9001 is the port configured,
and {HDFS-URL}/user/hive/warehouse is the warehouse configured.

Now here I'm interested to know the intention of maintaining full path of
the HDFS location in SDS Table, say why not a relative path, anyhow Hive is
capable of constructing full HDFS URL Path.

Any design inputs on it, will surely help.
