Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4821) Implement vectorized type casting for all types
Date Fri, 11 Oct 2013 20:10:43 GMT


Eric Hanson commented on HIVE-4821:

I created HIVE-5517 to cover adding .q tests for casts and other new vectorized functions.
Will that be okay to do it separately soon?

> Implement vectorized support for casting from any type to any type.
> From the documentation:
> cast(expr as <type>): Converts the results of the expression expr to <type>
e.g. cast('1' as BIGINT) will convert the string '1' to it integral representation. A null
is returned if the conversion does not succeed
> The current supported internal types are:
> Before implementation, determine what are the semantics of explicit casting to types
less general than the internal types. E.g. what if you cast DOUBLE to TINYINT? Can we just
cast internally to LONG and let the output process cast to TINYINT? 
> This JIRA includes all work to make casting operate end-to-end in a SQL query in vectorized
mode, including updates to VectorizationContext.
