Subject Re: Null pointer error with UNION ALL on partitioned tables
Date Sat, 16 Aug 2014 08:24:29 GMT
Suma,

UNION ALL wasn't supported on Tez at the time of the first merge, but it is
there in 0.13.0 (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6360).

Chris - sounds like a bug. I tried to repro it on trunk, but it worked for
me. Maybe I'm not hitting the right combination of things. Can you open a
jira? More details like full stack trace, schema and Tez version would help
too.

Thanks,
Gunther.
