Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-4204) Support ellipsis for selecting multiple columns
Date Wed, 20 Mar 2013 05:51:15 GMT
Navis created HIVE-4204:

             Summary: Support ellipsis for selecting multiple columns
                 Key: HIVE-4204
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Query Processor
            Reporter: Navis
            Assignee: Navis
            Priority: Trivial

Some UDF should take all columns starting from second or third one and in this case, star
argument(HIVE-3490) cannot be used. It's not pleasant to specify all of them especially when
the table has many of columns. For example,
select some_udtf(a2,a3,a4,a5,a6) as (a2,a3,a4,a5,a6) from table;

it can be simplified to 
select some_udtf(a2...) as (a2,a3,a4,a5,a6) from table;

if HIVE-2608 would be committed, it can be simplified further 
select some_udtf(a2...) from table;
