Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2390) Expand support for union types
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2011 03:47:27 GMT


Amareshwari Sriramadasu commented on HIVE-2390:

+1. I agree that when Union type was added, complete support for it was not added. We should
extend its usage in all the serdes.

bq. Part of the problem is that the term union has been overloaded. 
The type is called 'uniontype' in Hive to resolve ambiguities.

> When the union type was introduced, full support for it wasn't provided.  For instance,
when working with a union that gets passed to LazyBinarySerde:
