Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-14412) Add a timezone-aware timestamp
Date Thu, 29 Sep 2016 17:40:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-14412?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15533452#comment-15533452

Alan Gates commented on HIVE-14412:
-----------------------------------

Agree the TZ <-> non TZ conversions look like they match up with the spec.

Using the GMT+/-HH:MM format for timezone matches the spec, but it does create a weird situation
for many users where 1/2 the year their times will be off by an hour.  I think the big question
is can the underlying infrastructure handle it, as we don't want Hive in the business of understanding
when DST starts and stops all over the world.

> 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.
