Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-9500) Support nested structs over 24 levels.
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2015 19:37:35 GMT


Thejas M Nair commented on HIVE-9500:

Some initial comments -
 * Are you sure that UTF8 strings won't have negative byte values ? ( I don't know, I haven't
verified yet. String encoding details are something I fail to retain in my head!).
 * SerDeParameters is not applicable to all serdes, but only to specific sperdes that follow
the lazysimpleserde format. Calling it something like LazySerDeParameters would convey the
meaning better.
 * In LazyUtilsEvery.writeEscaped, with this change every char being written will now result
in 2 HashMap lookups (one for contains, and for get). This is very expensive relative to an
array index lookup. Can you use an offset to make it fit into byte array instead ?

Does reviewboard manage to deal with the patch if the q.out changes are excluded from what
is uploaded ?

we can support any number of levels).
