Review request for hive, Carl Steinbach and Vineet Garg.

Repository: hive-git


In Teradata 'like any' and 'like all' operators are mostly used when we are matching a text
field with numbers of patterns.
'like any' and 'like all' operator are equivalents of multiple like operator like example
--like any
select col1 from table1 where col2 like any ('%accountant%', '%accounting%', '%retail%', '%bank%',

--Can be written using multiple like condition 
select col1 from table1 where col2 like '%accountant%' or col2 like '%accounting%' or col2
like '%retail%' or col2 like '%bank%' or col2 like '%insurance%' ;

--like all
select col1 from table1 where col2 like all ('%accountant%', '%accounting%', '%retail%', '%bank%',

--Can be written using multiple like operator 
select col1 from table1 where col2 like '%accountant%' and col2 like '%accounting%' and col2
like '%retail%' and col2 like '%bank%' and col2 like '%insurance%' ;

Problem statement:

Now a days so many data warehouse projects are being migrated from Teradata to Hive.
Always Data engineer and Business analyst are searching for these two operator.
If we introduce these two operator in hive then so many scripts will be migrated smoothly
instead of converting these operators to multiple like operators.
