Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3323) ThriftSerde: Enable enum to string conversions
Date Fri, 24 Aug 2012 01:16:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-3323?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13440844#comment-13440844
] 

Feng Peng commented on HIVE-3323:
---------------------------------

I think it is fine. The current behavior for thrift is false and that's why we set it to false
in the current patch. But I don't think people are using SerDe to read complex thrift data,
otherwise they would have complained about this (and other problems we are having right now)
already.

> 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.
