Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2470) Improve support for Constant Object Inspectors
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2011 15:38:46 GMT


Igor Kabiljo commented on HIVE-2470:

I think, if the UdfType(deterministic=true):
- returns constant OI, if all arguments are constant OI
- handles both compile-time constant OIs and run-time passing of constant OIs
it can all work, if EVAL is not marked as deterministic, and has its own internal logic if
it can return constant OI or not.

In any case, EVAL cannot be marked as deterministic and must have its own internal logic,
since EVAL('RAND') receives all constant OIs, and doesn't return constant OI. On the other
hand EVAL('ARRAY', 1, 2, 3) should return constant OI.

Also, here 'deterministic' and without 'side-effects' is treated the same, but we can have
function returning constant OI in runtime, that has side-effects - like JAVA_F.

> ConstantObjectInspectors are nice but they need to be more widely supported and used.
 In particular,
> * More functions need to be using them.
> * There need to be facilities for propagating constness.
> * Support for complex types must be added.
