Hi Mark,
Thanks for the pointers. I looked at the code and it looks like my Java
code and the Hive code are similar...(I am a basiclevel Java guy). The UDF
below uses Math.sin....which is what I used to test "linux + Java" result.
I have to see what this DoubleWritable and Serde2 is all about...
package org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.udf;
import org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.Description;
import org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.UDF;
import org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.io.DoubleWritable;
/**
* UDFSin.
*
*/
@Description(name = "sin",
value = "_FUNC_(x)  returns the sine of x (x is in radians)",
extended = "Example:\n "
+ " > SELECT _FUNC_(0) FROM src LIMIT 1;\n" + " 0")
public class UDFSin extends UDF {
private DoubleWritable result = new DoubleWritable();
public UDFSin() {
}
public DoubleWritable evaluate(DoubleWritable a) {
if (a == null) {
return null;
} else {
result.set(Math.sin(a.get()));
return result;
}
}
}
