Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4409) Prevent incompatible column type changes
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2015 06:19:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-4409?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14986762#comment-14986762
] 

Lefty Leverenz commented on HIVE-4409:
--------------------------------------

Doc note:  This added *hive.metastore.disallow.incompatible.col.type.changes* to HiveConf.java,
so it needs to be documented in the wiki.

* [Configuration Properties -- MetaStore | https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/Configuration+Properties#ConfigurationProperties-MetaStore]

HIVE-12320 changes the default value to true.

> If a user changes the type of an existing column of a partitioned table to an incompatible
type, subsequent accesses of old partitions will result in a ClassCastException (see example
below).  We should prevent the user from making incompatible type changes.  This feature will
be controlled by a new config parameter.
> Example:
> CREATE TABLE test_table123 (a INT, b MAP<STRING, STRING>) PARTITIONED BY (ds STRING)
STORED AS SEQUENCEFILE;
> INSERT OVERWRITE TABLE test_table123 PARTITION(ds="foo1") SELECT 1, MAP("a1", "b1") FROM
src LIMIT 1;
> SELECT * from test_table123 WHERE ds="foo1";
> ALTER TABLE test_table123 REPLACE COLUMNS (a INT, b STRING);
> SELECT * from test_table123 WHERE ds="foo1";
> The last SELECT fails with the following exception:
> Failed with exception java.io.IOException:java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.lazy.objectinspector.LazyMapObjectInspector
cannot be cast to org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.objectinspector.PrimitiveObjectInspector
> java.io.IOException: java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.lazy.objectinspector.LazyMapObjectInspector
