> Hive currently uses the "local" time of a java.sql.Timestamp to represent the SQL data
type TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIME ZONE. The purpose is to be able to use {{Timestamp#getYear()}}
and similar methods to implement SQL functions like {{year}}.
> When the SQL session's time zone is a DST zone, such as America/Los_Angeles that alternates
between PST and PDT, there are times that cannot be represented because the effective zone
skips them.
> {code}
> hive> select TIMESTAMP '2015-03-08 02:10:00.101';
> 2015-03-08 03:10:00.101
> {code}
> Using UTC instead of the SQL session time zone as the underlying zone for a java.sql.Timestamp
avoids this bug, while still returning correct values for {{getYear}} etc. Using UTC as the
convenience representation (timestamp without time zone has no real zone) would make timestamp
calculations more consistent and avoid similar problems in the future.
> Notably, this would break the {{unix_timestamp}} UDF that specifies the result is with
respect to ["the default timezone and default locale"|https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+UDF#LanguageManualUDF-DateFunctions].
That function would need to be updated to use the {{System.getProperty("user.timezone")}}
zone.
