Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2478) Support dry run option in hive
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2011 12:38:34 GMT


kalyan ram commented on HIVE-2478:

Yes we can use EXPLAIN as well. In MySql older versions for some queries having sub queries
<explain> was executing the sub queries so I was thinking on those terms. So in Hive
is it that we never execute the query if EXPLAIN is present ? This feature might still be
useful in remote cases where you can't go and change your queries. For example if you want
to check if your queries will work against a new version of hive we can set this property
and check without modifying the query.

> Hive currently doesn't support a dry run option. For some complex queries we just want
to verify the query syntax initally before running it. A dry run option where just the parsing
is done without actual execution is a good option.
