Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6332) HCatConstants Documentation needed
Date Fri, 04 Apr 2014 07:09:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6332?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13959704#comment-13959704

Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-6332:
--------------------------------------

[~sushanth], you could flesh out the introduction with instructions on how/where/when to set
these properties. If they shouldn't be set by users, you could say they're generally set by
administrators.  A simple example or two would be helpful.

Right now I'm documenting hcat.dynamic.partitioning.custom.pattern (HIVE-6109) but it isn't
much use without information about how to set it. The jira description calls it a job config
-- does that mean it can be set for a single CREATE/ALTER TABLE statement?  Is that generally
true of HCatConstants configs?

> HCatConstants documentation is near non-existent, being defined only as comments in code
for the various parameters. Given that a lot of api winds up being implemented as knobs that
can be tweaked here, we should have a public facing doc for this.
