Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2090) Add "DROP DATABASE ... FORCE"
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2011 01:58:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2090?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13015717#comment-13015717

Carl Steinbach commented on HIVE-2090:
--------------------------------------

It doesn't seem valid to extend the semantics of HiveQL simply to support a use case motivated
by Hive's testing infrastructure.

Also, from a user perspective, how do you plan to explain the difference between "DROP DATABASE
x" and "DROP DATABASE x FORCE"? Should I use the former if I'm not really serious about dropping
the database?

> A "DROP DATABASE ... FORCE" will be useful, when we use a database for isolation when
doing some tests. Being able to force cleaning up the database will make test cleaning up
easier.
