Subject insert overwrite table - include key in seq file output
Date Fri, 09 Jul 2010 16:38:06 GMT

Something I noticed is that when I run an insert overwrite table... for
sequence files the key is empty.
This works as expected for further hive queries because as I understand,
hive only reads the value for hive based queries.

I have another MR job outside of hive that needs a key specified and want to
consume this same data.

My question is, can I run an insert overwrite table statement and specify a
specific column to use as the key instead of an empty int writable in the
output seq file ?

Thanks in advance.
