Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6616) Document ORC file format to enable development of external converters to/from ORC/text files
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2014 10:33:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6616?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13931623#comment-13931623

Michael commented on HIVE-6616:
-------------------------------

Yes, it is the same issue but from a non-Hive developer. As such, I do not want to dive into
Hive source code and look for appropriate classes and methods. I need two things:
1. Clear documentation with fields, sizes, types, offsets, etc. that allows creation of an
ORC file without using Hive code
2. Clear and comprehensive user guide (preferably with usage examples) for any Hive API that
can help in creating an ORC file. I can be a tester for such documentation (and any other
if it takes reasonable time).

such a file by external software. I would like to be able to create ORC files myself without
help of Hive.
