Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-12776) Add parse utility method for parsing any stand-alone HQL expression
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2016 17:51:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-12776?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15087759#comment-15087759

Alan Gates commented on HIVE-12776:
-----------------------------------

Here's an example of what I'm worried about.  A user is calling this interface with Hive 1.2,
and getting back an AST that maybe looks like A->B->C.  In Hive 1.3 we make a language
change, and the same syntax now produces a slightly different AST.  So after upgrading the
user makes the same call with the same input and gets A->B->D->C.  I don't want to
have to guarantee we won't cause these kinds of issues.  If we mark this clearly as not having
backwards compatibility guarantees then I'm perfectly fine with it.

> Extensions that use Hive QL as their standard language, will benefit from this. 
> Apache Lens uses HQL as its language of choice. To support that, it depends on a fork
of Hive, which has such code. I'm planning to port that to Apache Hive.
