---------------------------------

             Summary: The DecimalTypeInfo instance associated with a decimal constant is not
in line with the precision/scale of the constant
                 Key: HIVE-5726
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-5726
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Xuefu Zhang
            Assignee: Xuefu Zhang


Currently Hive uses a default decimal type info instance to associate with a decimal constant
in the expression tree. To precisely determine the precision/scale of the expression result
requires more accurate precision/scale of the type of the decimal constant. Thus, Hive uses
a precision/scale of the constant for the type info instance. As an example, the following
is not desirable:
{code}
hive> create table mytable as select 3.14BD as t from person_age limit 1;
hive> desc mytable;
OK
t                   	decimal(65,30)      	None                
Time taken: 0.08 seconds, Fetched: 1 row(s)
{code}

instead, the precision/scale for t above should be (3.2).
