> Hi
> I am using Hive-0.8.1.  I am trying to get type information for table columns from MetaStore.
 The Developer documentation says the components of ql/typeinfo is responsible for this.
> i.e, under the query processor section in
>   However the directory "typeinfo" is missing in hadoop/hive/ql.I understand from typeinfo
has java files that is responsible for getting all struct fieldnames, categories, primitive
types. etc.
