Arun A K commented on HIVE-3850:


I have checked the following 4 queries,
1) select hour('1:58:59') FROM myTable;
Result >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
2) select hour('13:58:59') FROM myTable;
Result >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
3) select hour('2009-07-30 10:58:59') FROM myTable;
Result >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
4) select hour('2009-07-30 14:58:59') FROM myTable;
Result >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I have got the response in 24 hour clock time aswell. 

Have I interpretted it wrong? Please comment on the same.

> Apparently does have two evaluate() functions. One that does accept a Text
object as parameter and one that does use a TimeStampWritable object as parameter. The first
function does return the value of Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY and the second one of Calendar.HOUR.
In the documentation I couldn't find any information on the overload of the evaluation function.
I did spent quite some time finding out why my statement didn't return a 24 hour clock value.
> Shouldn't both functions return the same?
