Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-9500) Support nested structs over 24 levels.
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2015 14:39:34 GMT


Aihua Xu commented on HIVE-9500:

[~thejas] Yes, LaxySimpleSerDe is used. This limitation actually applies for not only avro
format. The simple case of column <array<array...<array<int>>...> with
too many levels would fail.

I added a configuration and that approach seems to work. But the better approach seems to
completely remove such limitation since the number of levels only affects how to choose the
separators. Instead of preselecting the list of separators, we should dynamically generate
such list. This way, we can deprecate the configuration "hive.serialization.extend.nesting.levels"
as well.

we can support any number of levels).
