Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-14412) Add a timezone-aware timestamp
Date Mon, 15 Aug 2016 11:03:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-14412?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15420848#comment-15420848

Rui Li commented on HIVE-14412:
-------------------------------

Somehow the tests worked this time. {{TestStandardObjectInspectors}} is related because of
the new type.
I'd like to get more feedback before moving on. Pinging [~sershe], [~ashutoshc], [~xuefuz]
for opinions. Do you think the proposal makes sense, or is there better way to achieve this?
Thanks.

> Java's Timestamp stores the time elapsed since the epoch. While it's by itself unambiguous,
ambiguity comes when we parse a string into timestamp, or convert a timestamp to string, causing
problems like HIVE-14305.
> To solve the issue, I think we should make timestamp aware of timezone.
