Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6023) Numeric Data Type Support
Date Thu, 12 Dec 2013 19:34:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6023?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13846647#comment-13846647

Eric Hanson commented on HIVE-6023:
-----------------------------------

Not that I know of. You could implement UDFs to do operations on some other type like a string
to get the semantics you want but that sounds like too much work for this situation.

> Many companies are rethinking their strategies to adapt Hive into their ETL just for
the reason that it does not support the most basic data types like Numeric(a,b). I believe
there should be an improvement with upcoming versions of hive. Can we extend the hive with
custom UDF for Numeric(a,b) data type?
