Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-14412) Add a timezone-aware timestamp
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2016 05:20:20 GMT


Rui Li commented on HIVE-14412:

[~xuefuz], thanks for your comments. In {{TimestampColumnVector}}, we store the time and nanos
of each timestamp, then we read/write them in {{TimestampTreeReader}} and {{TimestampTreeWriter}}
accordingly. I guess we can't maintain compatibility here since we're adding a new field.
Another possible solution is, instead of extending timestamp, we treat HiveTimestamp as a
totally new data type. What do you think?

> 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.
