Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3074) Create a new API which gets a new empty partition object.
Date Thu, 14 Jun 2012 07:48:44 GMT


Carl Steinbach commented on HIVE-3074:

@Namit: I don't understand what Ed means by "... a shallow object to play with before writing
back". Maybe you can explain it to me? Better yet, can you please tell me why the existing
append_partition() methods don't work for you?

> Gets a new partition object with the given parameters. Similar to append_partition, but
does not add the partition to metastore. It only works for tables; does not work for other
objects like views. The table is fetched from the metastore using the db name and the table
name.  However, the actual partition is not fetched from the metastore. It does not matter
whether the partition exists or not.The partition values are used to construct a new partition.
