Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7689) Enable Postgres as METASTORE back-end
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2014 11:54:34 GMT


Damien Carol commented on HIVE-7689:

[~alangates] I understand more clearly now why you have some concerns regarding that JIRA.
bq. Are you concerned that having upper case names for DataNucleus generated tables but lower
case names for transaction tables is confusing? I don't see that as an issue since these tables
are not a public interface.
First time I launched the script for posgres, I saw the new tables was lower case but all
other tables was in upper case. I believed it was a bug. If this not an issue, I think we
can close this JIRA.

It's just confusing. Every tables in Metastore rely on same upper case policy and naming conventions.

The only problem is when we will extend Jdbc stats provider or provide access to this lower
cased tables though DataNucleus.
Plus if we want to support a new Database for back-end that don't rely on "default lower case"
