Subject Upper case column names
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2012 15:24:58 GMT

The column names in hive are by default case insensitive.
I was wondering if there is any way, I could make the column names case sensitive?
I am running a model on a data, the data is now stored in hive, the model has columns referred
in camel case.
It would require a lot of effort to change the code of the model, so I was wondering if I
could change my hive schema or anything.
Would changing the metastore_db help in someway ?
