Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2482) Convenience UDFs for binary data type
Date Mon, 12 Aug 2013 19:55:49 GMT


Mark Wagner commented on HIVE-2482:

bq. I think we should not do this ^ lets make another UDF, or overload the parameters of this

Is there any way to deprecate a UDF that will move people away from the current 'unhex'? The
only difference from the updated version is that the current one wraps the output in Text,
so that it could be used by Hive before the binary support. Now that there is binary support
it doesn't make any sense for unhex to wrap its output.

> HIVE-2380 introduced binary data type in Hive. It will be good to have following udfs
to make it more useful:
> * UDF's to convert to/from hex string
> * UDF's to convert to/from string using a specific encoding
> * UDF's to convert to/from base64 string
