Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-7868) AvroSerDe error handling could be improved
Date Sun, 24 Aug 2014 00:37:10 GMT
Brock Noland created HIVE-7868:

             Summary: AvroSerDe error handling could be improved
                 Key: HIVE-7868
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Brock Noland

When an Avro schema is invalid, AvroSerDe returns an error message instead of throwing an
exception. This is described in {{AvroSerdeUtils.determineSchemaOrReturnErrorSchema}}:

   * Attempt to determine the schema via the usual means, but do not throw
   * an exception if we fail.  Instead, signal failure via a special
   * schema.  This is used because Hive calls init on the serde during
   * any call, including calls to update the serde properties, meaning
   * if the serde is in a bad state, there is no way to update that state.

I believe we should find a way to provide a better experience to our users.
