Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-5032) Enable hive creating external table at the root directory of DFS
Date Tue, 13 Aug 2013 21:34:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-5032?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13738859#comment-13738859

Sushanth Sowmyan commented on HIVE-5032:
----------------------------------------

+1, fix looks good to me and should not damage existing use-cases. I've not explicitly run
the entire test suite to verify, but as long as those have been explicitly verified, I'm good
with this.

> Creating external table using HIVE with location point to the root directory of DFS will
fail because the function HiveFileFormatUtils#doGetPartitionDescFromPath treat authority of
the path the same as folder and cannot find a match in the "pathToPartitionInfo" table when
doing prefix match.
