Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-5032) Enable hive creating external table at the root directory of DFS
Date Thu, 09 Jan 2014 19:57:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-5032?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13866974#comment-13866974

Ashutosh Chauhan commented on HIVE-5032:
----------------------------------------

Actually smaller change which will fix this issue is to use dir.getParent() for incoming path,
instead of changing it into string representation and than use indexOf(). Thats a local change
without needing to change signature of pathToPartitionInfo. Thats a cleaner solution.

> Creating external table using HIVE with location point to the root directory of DFS will
fail because the function HiveFileFormatUtils#doGetPartitionDescFromPath treat authority of
the path the same as folder and cannot find a match in the "pathToPartitionInfo" table when
doing prefix match.
