Subject RE: Filtering on TIMESTAMP data type
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2012 03:21:21 GMT
Can anyone helpout with the TIMESTAMP literals piece. So far, I've gotten

Select day_timestamp from lu_day where day_timestamp > to_utc_timestamp('2012-06-04 00:00:00',
'GMT') to work ok and give me back timestamps greater than the one in the literal. Is this
the best function to get this to work or is there something else I should be using

Didn't quite follow your first comment. I get the write-your-own UDF part but was wondering
how others have been transitioning from STRING dates to TIMESTAMP dates and getting filtering,
partition pruning, etc to work with constants

How do I set-up a filter constant for TIMESTAMP datatype. In Hive 0.7 since timestamps were
represented as strings a query like this would return data

select * from LU_day where day_date ='2010-01-01 00:00:00';

But now with day_date as a TIMESTAMP column it doesn't. Is there some type of a TO_TIMESTAMP
function in hive to convert the string constant into a TIMESTAMP one

As a workaround I can do

select * from LU_DAY where TO_DATE(day_date) = '2010-01-01' but that would be a problem for
partitioning pruning, etc
