Subject [jira] [Updated] (HIVE-6806) CREATE TABLE should support STORED AS AVRO
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2014 06:07:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6806?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Ashish Kumar Singh updated HIVE-6806:
-------------------------------------

    Release Note: Add support to infer Avro schema from Hive table schema. Avro-backed tables
can simply be created by using "STORED AS AVRO" in DDL statement. AvroSerDe takes care of
creating appropriate Avro schema from Hive table schema, a big win in terms of Avro usability
in Hive.

> Avro is well established and widely used within Hive, however creating Avro-backed tables
requires the messy listing of the SerDe, InputFormat and OutputFormat classes.
> Similarly to HIVE-5783 for Parquet, Hive would be easier to use if it had native Avro
support.
