Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2617) Insert overwrite table db.tname fails if partition already exists
Date Wed, 14 Dec 2011 06:04:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2617?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13169103#comment-13169103

Namit Jain commented on HIVE-2617:
----------------------------------

The code changes look good - but the test is failing for me.
Can you reduce the testcase by selecting fewer rows from the table or creating new data 
files with fewer rows ?

> Insert Overwrite table db.tname fails if partition already exists.
> For example-
> insert overwrite table db.tname PARTITION(part='p') select .. from t2 where part='p';
fails if partition 'p' already exists. Workaround is - use db; and the fire the command.
> From the source code-
> alterPartition(tbl.getTableName(), new Partition(tbl, tpart)); takes String tablename
as argument and loses db information. Table table = newTable(tablename) is called to retrieve
table from name. But, it relies on currentDatabase value (hence the workaround).
