Phabricator updated HIVE-2795:
------------------------------

    Attachment: HIVE-2795.D1683.1.patch

kevinwilfong requested code review of "HIVE-2795 [jira] View partitions do not have a storage
descriptor".
Reviewers: JIRA

  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2795

  Updated the metastore so that if a partition is added to a view and the partition's StorageDescriptor
is null it will use a copy of the table's StorageDescriptor.

  Besides being an inconsistency, it causes errors.

  Calling describe formatted on a view partition throws an exception

  java.lang.NullPointerException
    at org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.Partition.getCols(Partition.java:505)
    at org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask.describeTable(DDLTask.java:2570)

  because it does not have a column descriptor, which is part of the storage descriptor.
