Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3638) metadataonly1.q test fails with Hadoop23
Date Tue, 30 Oct 2012 01:58:12 GMT


Shreepadma Venugopalan commented on HIVE-3638:

Yes, thats correct. When no splits are generated Hive takes a different code path and a NULL
is emitted from the closeOp() of the groupByOperator. I originally noticed this problem with
hadoop20 after HDFS-3672 was committed. I believe MAPREDUCE-4470 fixes the behavior on hadoop23
i.e., hadoop23 generates 1 split even when the directory is empty. I checked the behavior
on hadoop20 and hadoop23 a month or so back and behavior seemed consistent with the empty
result set. However, NULL is the correct behavior as per the SQL standard. Do you see this
difference in behavior on the latest trunk? Thanks.

> This no longer works with Hadoop23, causing this test to fail. Note that this tests empty
