Subject [jira] [Updated] (HIVE-12184) DESCRIBE of fully qualified table fails when db and table name match and non-default database is in use
Date Fri, 06 Nov 2015 20:26:10 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-12184?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Naveen Gangam updated HIVE-12184:
---------------------------------
    Attachment: HIVE-12184.4.patch

I am attaching a patch that proposes a change to the hive grammar for "DESCRIBE TABLE".
The following is the new syntax
DESCRIBE TABLE [DB.]TABLE [ COLUMN]

where DB is the database identifier (DOT ends the name of the database)
TABLE is table identifier
COLUMN is either
  column name
  column.$elem$ // references the list for list datatypes
  column.$elem$.<listMember> // references the member of the list
  column.$key$ // references the key for map datatypes
  column.$value$ // references the value for the map data types.

Please review the change and let me know.
