Demeter Sztanko created HIVE-10437:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: NullPointerException on queries where map/reduce is not involved on
tables with partitions
                 Key: HIVE-10437
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-10437
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.1.0
            Reporter: Demeter Sztanko
            Priority: Minor


On a table with partitions, whenever I try to do a simple query which tells hive not to execute
mapreduce but just read data straight from hdfs, it raises an exception:
{code}
create external table jsonbug(
a int,
b string
)
    PARTITIONED BY (
    `c` string)
ROW FORMAT SERDE
  'org.openx.data.jsonserde.JsonSerDe'
WITH SERDEPROPERTIES (
      'ignore.malformed.json'='true')
STORED AS INPUTFORMAT
  'org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TextInputFormat'
OUTPUTFORMAT
  'org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.io.HiveIgnoreKeyTextOutputFormat'
LOCATION
  '/tmp/jsonbug';

ALTER TABLE jsonbug ADD PARTITION(c='1');
{code}

Runnin simple 
{code}
select * from jsonbug;
{code}

Raises the following exception:
{code}
FAILED: RuntimeException org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException: Failed with exception

{code}

It works fine if I execute a query involving map/reduce job though.

This problem occurs only when using SerDe's created for hive versions pre 1.1.0, those which
do not have @SerDeSpec annotation specified. Most of the third party SerDE's, including hcat's
JsonSerde have this problem as well. 
It seems like changes made in HIVE-7977 introduce this bug. See org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.FetchOperator.needConversion(FetchOperator.java:607)
{code}
Class<?> tableSerDe = tableDesc.getDeserializerClass();
String[] schemaProps = AnnotationUtils.getAnnotation(tableSerDe, SerDeSpec.class).schemaProps();
{code}
And it also seems like a relatively easy fix.
