Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-14412) Add a timezone-aware timestamp
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2016 22:24:22 GMT


Jason Dere commented on HIVE-14412:

Check if there are any issues with TypeInfoParser/PrimitiveObjectInspectorUtils. When i did
interval I wasn't sure about if the spaces would be problematic internally within Hive and
used underscores. In the Hive SQL parser you should be able to have "TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE"
be recognized as a synonym for TIMESTAMPTZ when parsing type names, but internally (serde
params, describe table) the type name will currently show up using the type name that was
registered in PrimitiveObjectInspectorUtils.

> 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.
