Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4844) Add varchar data type
Date Sat, 07 Sep 2013 00:52:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-4844?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13760823#comment-13760823

Jason Dere commented on HIVE-4844:
----------------------------------

The max varchar length setting was pretty arbitrary, sure we can have it set to a lower value.
Any ideas on what value to initially set? 32,767 (small enough to fit within a short), or
maybe something even smaller like 1024, just to make the point that we don't want enormous
varchar columns that require checking the string length?

> Add new varchar data types which have support for more SQL-compliant behavior, such as
SQL string comparison semantics, max length, etc.
> Char type will be added as another task.
> NO PRECOMMIT TESTS - now dependent on HIVE-5203/5204/5206
