Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3323) ThriftSerde: Enable enum to string conversions
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2012 22:04:43 GMT


Jakob Homan commented on HIVE-3323:

One comment I have:
+    CONVERT_ENUM_TO_STRING("", false),
since AvroSerde already does this and doesn't provide an option not to, can we change option
name to be thrift specific?

> When using serde-reported schemas with the ThriftDeserializer, Enum fields are presented
as {{struct<value:int>}}
> Many users expect to work with the string values, which is both easier and more meaningful
as the string value communicates what is represented.
> Hive should provide a mechanism to optionally convert enum values to strings.
