Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7458) Drop Hive Table If Exists Throw out Error by Spark
Date Mon, 21 Jul 2014 13:42:38 GMT


Damien Carol commented on HIVE-7458:

Your are doing {{hiveContext.hql("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS hivetesting")}} in Scala schell of
the Spark project.

What this shell is doing ? Query to remote metastore on non existing table (see on your provided
The remote metastore throws {{NoSuchObjectException(message:default.hivetesting table not
found)}} because Spark code call {{HiveMetaStoreClient.getTable(}}
on non-existing table. It's the right behavior.
You should check on Spark code why a query is done on non existing table.

I think Spark does not handle well the {{IF EXISTS}} part of this query. Maybe you could fill
a ticket on Spark JIRA.

BUT, it's *not a bug* in HIVE IMHO.

It is ok for me to do drop table command under hive shell environment. But when I enter into
spark-shell env, I use hiveContext.hql("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS hivetesting"). And then, I get
following error:

> I think when running under hive shell, it mutes this error. But under spark shell, hive
doesn't mute this error and throw out error directly. So If the table doesn't exist, hive
should not throw out error; it should throw out warning.
