Subject Using JSON Data with Hive
Date Fri, 07 Jun 2013 07:24:28 GMT
Hi there,

I'm looking if we can use Hive to run our usage analytics; our system right now collects data
from our clients in JSON format which results in multiple files per client (every time analytics
events are uploaded to the server a new file is created) which is in JSON format; each file
has one JSON array with multiple JSON objects representing the actual analytics events.

From what I understood from the docs so far, Hive should be able to with with JSON data; the
only difference our data has compared to the data I saw in several examples is, that the actual
entries are inside an array instead of being single lines in this file.

Can I process them directly or do I need to write some custom code to transform the input
