Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-5206) Support parameterized primitive types
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 19:10:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-5206?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13758212#comment-13758212

Jason Dere commented on HIVE-5206:
----------------------------------

Correction - the justification is for decimal, char, varchar, so for a combination of string/numeric
types. The "right" way depends on whether the type is a qualified type and requires parameters.


Not going to indulge the "what if" fantasies here, but would like to point out that decimal/char/varchar
are pretty fundamental SQL types which many Hive users are interested in, and I hope this
work helps to facilitate that effort. If someone wants to take up the torch on unifying integral
types as a part of this work, that is great too if that is the right thing to do.

> Support for parameterized types is needed for char/varchar/decimal support. This adds
a type parameters value to the PrimitiveTypeEntry/PrimitiveTypeInfo/PrimitiveObjectInspector
objects. 
> NO PRECOMMIT TESTS - dependent on HIVE-5203/HIVE-5204
