> HiveColumnarLoader Partitioning Support
> ---------------------------------------
>                 Key: PIG-1526
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1526
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 0.8.0
>            Reporter: Gerrit Jansen van Vuuren
>            Assignee: Gerrit Jansen van Vuuren
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 0.8.0
>         Attachments: PIG-1526.patch
> I've made allot improvements on the HiveColumnarLoader:
> -> Added support for LoadMetadata and data path Partitioning 
> -> Improved and simplefied column loading
> Data Path Partitioning:
> Hive stores partitions as folders like to /mytable/partition1=[value]/partition2=[value].
That is the table mytable contains 2 partitions [partition1, partition2].
> The HiveColumnarLoader will scan the inputpath /mytable and add to the PigSchema the
columns partition2 and partition2. 
> These columns can then be used in filtering. 
> For example: We've got year,month,day,hour partitions in our data uploads.
> So a table might look like mytable/year=2010/month=02/day=01.
> Loading with the HiveColumnarLoader allows our pig scripts do filter by date using the
standard pig Filter operator.
> I've added 2 classes for this:
> -> PathPartitioner
> -> PathPartitionHelper
> These classes are not hive dependent and could be used by any other loader that wants
to support partitioning and helps with implementing the LoadMetadata interface.
> For this reason I though it best to put it into the package org.apache.pig.piggybank.storage.partition.
> What would be nice is in the future have the PigStorage also use these 2 classes to provide
automatic path partitioning support.
