Subject UDF Configure method not getting called
Date Tue, 25 Aug 2015 18:32:48 GMT
Hi Guys,

We have a UDF which extends GenericUDF and does some configuration within
the public void configure(MapredContext ctx) method.

MapredContext in configure method gives access to the HiveConfiguration via
JobConf, which contains custom attributes of the form
Reading these values is required for the semantics of the UDF.

Everything works fine till Hive 0.13, however with Hive 0.14 (or 1.0) the
configure method of the UDF is never called by the runtime and hence the
UDF cannot configure itself dynamically.

Is this the intended behavior? If so, what is the new way to read
configuration of the Map Reduce Job within the UDF?

I would be grateful for any help.
