Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3611) Hive JDBC doesn't support BINARY column
Date Fri, 17 Jan 2014 15:33:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-3611?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13874870#comment-13874870

Xuefu Zhang commented on HIVE-3611:
-----------------------------------

[~leftylev] 

1. Yes, binary type is in the list of JdbcColumn, but data can only be retrieved via getString()
assuming data is encoded as base64. This JIRA adds getBinaryStream(), and binary data is retried
as binary.
2. In my opinion, old JDBC (org.apache.hadoop.hive package) is in maintenance/deprecated mode,
and we should not be adding new features (data types). However, this is not followed strictly
by everyone. Thus, disparities may be seen.

> Similar to HIVE-2957, the JDBC HiveDriver should also support BINARY type columns.
