Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-9310) CLI JLine does not flush history back to ~/.hivehistory
Date Thu, 22 Jan 2015 19:16:37 GMT


Prasanth Jayachandran commented on HIVE-9310:

[~gopalv] Yes. The history dir is the user's home directory which exists. The history file
.hivehistory also exists (will be created if it doesn't exist). But still the commands are
not logged to the hive history file.

To reproduce
1) Remove the .hivehistory file
2) Restart hive cli
3) Run some commands and quit cli
4) When we rerun the hive cli again, press up arrow nothing will show up from history. 

I suspect, the flushing doesn't happen because of quit command which issues System.exit(0)
and quits the cli without ever calling the history.flush(). Same happens with SIGINT as well.
I think we need to flush the history before processing every command. Adding the history flushing
just before executing the command seems to fix the issue. I can put up a patch for it if you
can confirm that the current way of flushing does not work.

> In JLine with the PersistentHistory class, to keep history across sessions, you need
to do {{reader.getHistory().flush()}}.
