Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-11985) handle long typenames from Avro schema in metastore
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:50:29 GMT


Ashutosh Chauhan commented on HIVE-11985:

I would like to have other's opinion on this. 
Patch arbitrarily replaces a long type name (> 2K chars) with a typename {{struct<>}}
for serde supplied schemas under the assumption that this typename is not used for anything
for query processing (now and in *future*).  This lossy information (stored permanently in
metastore) for type might not be a good idea, because this prevents us from using type information
reliably in future. We can never be sure whether type info is correct or truncated one. Secondly,
for its current use case (of describe table) it will atleast be confusing for user to see
struct<> in type info in describe output, as oppose to actual type info.
IMHO, throwing an error for type name (> 2K) which is also part of the patch, should be
 [~alangates] your thoughts?
