Subject RE: External Table to Sequence File on HDFS
Date Fri, 05 Apr 2013 09:50:47 GMT
Hi Sanjay

Thank you for the quick response.

I got the input format part from the link that u sent. But in order to read that table in
Hive, i need to specify the SerDe, where exactly do I specify this class file.

Is it something like,

create table seq10 (key STRING, value STRING) ROW FORMAT SERDE ''
LOCATION <hdfs path>;

Is this the right approach where i specify the input file format and write a custom serDe

Please correct me if I am wrong

Subject: External Table to Sequence File on HDFS


I want to create a external hive table to a sequence file(each record -> key value) on
HDFS. How will the field names be mapped to the column names.

Please Suggest.
