Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2961) Remove need for storage descriptors for view partitions
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 06:24:00 GMT


Carl Steinbach commented on HIVE-2961:

But if we end up taking that route, I think we should leave the
scripts for the sake of consistency.

> Storage descriptors were introduced for view partitions as part of HIVE-2795.  This was
to allow view partitions to have the concept of a region as well as to fix a NPE that resulted
from calling describe formatted on them.
> Since regions are no longer necessary for view partitions and the NPE can be fixed by
not displaying storage information for view partitions (or displaying the view's storage information
if this is preferred, although, since a view partition is purely metadata, this does not seem
necessary), these are no longer needed.
> This also means the Python script added which retroactively adds storage descriptors
to existing view partitions can be removed.
