Subject how could i distinguish tables/views in one API?
Date Mon, 01 Sep 2014 13:52:13 GMT
Hi Hadoop experts,

Does anyone know that is there a way to distinguish between tables/views at the loading time?
Currently the webHCat API just has a get table API<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/WebHCat+Reference+GetTables>,
which returns some basic information of a list of tables/views  – but it does not distinguish
between those two entities in that API. We don’t want to query for details for each table
since that may take a long time – so is there a method to get the basic properties of all
the tables/views at the same time so we could distinguish them?
Thanks☺

Xiaoyong
