Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2509) Literal bigint
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2011 00:23:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2509?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13131209#comment-13131209

Jonathan Chang commented on HIVE-2509:
--------------------------------------

To put it another way, once you have complex types (arrays, maps, struct and the like) you
either need strong typing (a la C++, Java, etc.) or full-on duck typing (a la Python).  I
don't think any language has successfully maintained a middle ground (what Hive is trying
to do right now).

> Typing bigints is a pain because you have to write CAST(0 AS BIGINT).  We should let
people type 0L instead.
