Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6952) Hive 0.13 HiveOutputFormat breaks backwards compatibility
Date Wed, 23 Apr 2014 09:54:16 GMT


Costin Leau commented on HIVE-6952:

Can't comment on the entire commit but the HiveOutputFormat seems to be fixed now (it's the
same as before). Do you have any ETA for 0.13.1? Cause as it stands right now 0.13 is unusable
and the more 0.13.1 is postpone, the more likely the breakage will be propagated into the
various Hadoop distros out there.

> Hive 0.13 changed the signature of HiveOutputFormat (through commit r1527149) breaking
backwards compatibility with previous releases; the return type of getHiveRecordWriter has
been changed from RecordWriter to FSRecordWriter.
> FSRecordWriter introduces one new method on top of RecordWriter however it does not extend
the previous interface and it lives in a completely new package.
> Thus code running fine on Hive 0.12 breaks on Hive 0.13. After the upgrade, code running
on HIve 0.13, will break on anything lower than this.
> This could have easily been avoided by extending the existing interface or introducing
a new one that RecordWriter could have extended going forward. By changing the signature,
the existing contract (and compatibility) has been voided.
