Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3528) Avro SerDe doesn't handle serializing Nullable types that require access to a Schema
Date Wed, 20 Feb 2013 23:37:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-3528?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13582664#comment-13582664
] 

Michael Malak commented on HIVE-3528:
-------------------------------------

As noted in the first comment from https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1287, casting
to a STRUCT is not currently supported.

However, I did just now try casting individual fields of a STRUCT and that indeed does work.

I just now added details to the JIRA that I created last week.

> Deserialization properly handles hiding Nullable Avro types, including complex types
like record, map, array, etc. However, when Serialization attempts to write out these types
it erroneously makes use of the UNION schema that contains NULL and the other type.
> This results in Schema mis-match errors for Record, Array, Enum, Fixed, and Bytes.
> Here's a [review board of unit tests that express the problem|https://reviews.apache.org/r/7431/],
as well as one that supports the case that it's only when the schema is needed.
