>          Components: Metastore
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.0

> DDL commands like:
> ALTER TABLE test SET TBLPROPERTIES('serialization.null.format'='');
> are silently ignored if the database backing Metastore is Oracle. This appears to be
because Oracle treats an empty string as null.
> Unlike when using MySql, no entry is created in the TBL_PARAMS table.
> Steps to reproduce:
> Create a table with a string field.
> eg table mytable, field mystringfield.
> ALTER TABLE mytable SET TBLPROPERTIES('serialization.null.format'='');
> DESCRIBE FORMATTED mytable;
> with mysql backed Metastore, the entry will be displayed:
> serialization.null.format 
> and an entry is created in the TBL_PARAMS for the parameter.
> With Oracle backed metastore, it is not, and no entry is created in TBL_PARAMS.
