Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7097) The Support for REGEX Column Broken in HIVE 0.13
Date Wed, 21 May 2014 00:50:38 GMT


Sun Rui commented on HIVE-7097:

[~cartershanklin] Thanks for your explanation. I happened to use REGEX columns to shorten
several queries. I can do a one-shot change to not use it, since the community have not opposed
to this breaking of backward compatibility. Could you update the documentation to reflect
the new behavior?

>                 URL:
>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Query Processor
>    Affects Versions: 0.13.0
>            Reporter: Sun Rui
> The Support for REGEX Column is OK in HIVE 0.12, but is broken in HIVE 0.13.
> For example:
> {code:sql}
> select `key.*` from src limit 1;
> {code}
> will fail in HIVE 0.13 with the following error from SemanticAnalyzer:
> {noformat}
> FAILED: SemanticException [Error 10004]: Line 1:7 Invalid table alias or column reference
'key.*': (possible column names are: key, value)
> {noformat}
> This issue is related to HIVE-6037. When set "",
the issue will be gone.
> I am not sure the configuration was intended to break regex column. But at least the
documentation needs to be updated:
> I would argue backward compatibility is more important.
