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


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.

>    Affects Versions: 0.9.0, 0.10.0, 0.11.0, 0.12.0
>         Environment: Hive 0.90, Linux, Hadoop, Data Type Extension

>   Original Estimate: 2h

> 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?
