> Recently my team started using Spark for analysis of huge JSON objects. Spark itself
handles it well. The problem starts when we try to create a Hive table from it using steps
from this part of doc: http://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/sql-programming-guide.html#hive-tables
> After running command `spark.sql("CREATE TABLE x AS (SELECT * FROM y)") we get following
exception (sorry for obfuscating, confidential data):
> {code}
> Exception in thread "main" org.apache.spark.sql.AnalysisException: org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Error: : expected at the position 993 of 'string:struct<a:boolean,b:array<string>,c:boolean,d:struct<e:boolean,f:boolean,[...(few
others)],z:boolean,... 4 more fields>,[...(rest of valid struct string)]>' but ' ' is
found.;
> {code}
> It turned out that the exception was raised because of `... 4 more fields` part as it
is not a valid representation of data structure.
> An easy workaround is to set `spark.debug.maxToStringFields` to some large value. Nevertheless
it shouldn't be required and the stringifying process should use methods targeted at giving
valid data structure for Hive.
> In my opinion the root problem is here:
> https://github.com/apache/spark/blob/9d7a47406ed538f0005cdc7a62bc6e6f20634815/sql/catalyst/src/main/scala/org/apache/spark/sql/catalyst/encoders/ExpressionEncoder.scala#L318
when calling `simpleString` method instead of `catalogString`. Nevertheless this class is
used at many places and I don't feel that experienced with Spark to automatically submit PR.
> We believe this issue is indirectly caused by this PR: https://github.com/apache/spark/pull/13537
> There has been almost the same issue in the past. You can find it here: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-16415
