Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-9430) NullPointerException on ALTER TABLE ADD PARTITION if no value given
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2015 10:02:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-9430?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14298430#comment-14298430
] 

Danny Lade commented on HIVE-9430:
----------------------------------

I see our argumentation. In my case the table was created with:
{code}
CREATE TABLE xxx LIKE yyy;
{code}
The idea was to clone a table and add a partition then based on a given column. 

Maybe I should add a feature wish, to add partitioning at the "CREATE TABLE LIKE" query.

Thx for removing the NPE.
