Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6757) Remove deprecated parquet classes from outside of org.apache package
Date Fri, 28 Mar 2014 09:30:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6757?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13950531#comment-13950531

Justin Coffey commented on HIVE-6757:
-------------------------------------

Owen, the solution your proposing means that there is no seamless upgrade path for existing
parquet-hive users and that somewhere on the hive wiki there will have to be a call out "attention
existing parquet users, you must include the parquet-hive.jar when upgrading to hive 13. 
we're sorry, but this is the price you have to pay for being an early adopter and driving
functionality".

One of the goals of the #HIVE-5783 patch was to make the lives of parquet users easier (there
were of course many other reasons, but ease of use is a good goal in and of itself).  The
classes as they are do no harm and it's hard to see how they pollute the code base of Hive
in any significant way.  This patch kinda sorta seems a tiny bit punitive if you ask me.

Please don't take any of this the wrong way, but I believe this is what a fair chunk of the
parquet-hive community might think if this patch is committed.
