Subject [jira] [Updated] (HIVE-10427) collect_list() and collect_set() should accept struct types as argument
Date Thu, 21 May 2015 17:33:17 GMT


Chao Sun updated HIVE-10427:
    Attachment: HIVE-10427.3.patch

Added a few tests for decimal and varchar. Also the behavior for sort_array to resolve the
ordering issue of test result. Currently sort_array only accept list of primitives, but since
we already support comparison between nested types (map, struct, union, etc), I think it makes
sense to remove this limitation.

> The collect_list() and collect_set() functions currently only accept scalar argument
types. It would be very useful if these functions could also accept struct argument types
for creating nested data from flat data.
> For example, suppose I wanted to create a nested customers/orders table from two flat
tables, customers and orders. Then it'd be very convenient to write something like this:
> {code}
> insert into table nested_customers_orders
> select c.*, collect_list(named_struct("oid", o.oid, "order_date":
> from customers c inner join orders o on (c.cid = o.oid)
> group by c.cid
> {code}
> Thanks you for your consideration.
