Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-9482) Hive parquet timestamp compatibility
Date Tue, 27 Jan 2015 22:57:34 GMT
Szehon Ho created HIVE-9482:

             Summary: Hive parquet timestamp compatibility
                 Key: HIVE-9482
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: File Formats
    Affects Versions: 0.15.0
            Reporter: Szehon Ho
            Assignee: Szehon Ho
             Fix For: 0.15.0

In current Hive implementation, timestamps are stored in UTC (converted from current timezone),
based on original parquet timestamp spec.

However, we find this is not compatibility with other tools, and after some investigation
it is not the way of the other file formats, or even some databases (Hive Timestamp is more
equivalent of 'timestamp without timezone' datatype).

This is the first part of the fix, which will restore compatibility with parquet-timestamp
files generated by external tools by skipping conversion on reading.

Later fix will change the write path to not convert, and stop the read-conversion even for
files written by Hive itself.
