Subject HCatalog Storage Format
Date Mon, 30 Jan 2012 22:24:25 GMT

I would like to know whether they are any plans of supporting other formats
in HCatalog apart from RCFile.

1) Why RCFile Format was given preference over others?
2) How do you import data that is available in CSV file into HCatalog
table, as of now it supports only RCFile Format.
3) In what way HCatalog differs from Hive?

Please Advice

Thanks in Advance
