> Hive has a feature where {{Partition}}'s without any defined columns use the {{Table}}
schema. This happens in {{[Partition.initialize|https://github.com/apache/hive/blob/trunk/ql/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/hive/ql/metadata/Partition.java#L167]}}
> {code}
> // set default if columns are not set
> if (tPartition.getSd().getCols() == null) {
>   if (table.getCols() != null) {
>     tPartition.getSd().setCols(table.getCols());
>   }
> }
> {code}
> There's an issue though, because {{[Table.getEmptyTable|https://github.com/apache/hive/blob/trunk/ql/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/hive/ql/metadata/Table.java#L121]}}
initializes cols to an empty array, which of course is not null, causing the above feature
to not work as expected.
> I'm not sure of the fix - is there a case where cols can indeed be null? I think the
best thing to do here is:
> {code}
> -        if (tPartition.getSd().getCols() == null) {
> +        if (tPartition.getSd().getCols() == null || tPartition.getSd().getCols().size()
== 0) {
> {code}
> Thoughts?
