Subject Native ORC
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2014 22:44:47 GMT
   We are working on a native (aka C++) ORC reader and writer. For now we
are working on it over at my old github -
. First of all, I wanted to let everyone know it is happening and invite
others to give feedback or help. You can see the API for the reader in the
src/orc directory.

  It leads to an interesting question. I'd like to contribute it back to
Hive to keep the two implementations (Java and C++) together, but that
would mean adding an optional C++ module to Hive, which is currently all
Java. The other option is to take the native ORC reader to Apache incubator
as a new project and eventually pull the Java one along with it.

 I'm very interested in the Hive development communities opinion.
