Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-12983) Provide a builtin function to get Hive version
Date Tue, 02 Feb 2016 22:15:40 GMT


Lenni Kuff commented on HIVE-12983:

[~szehon] - I think the revision is nice to have so you can know exactly what commit this
is built from. The other build info is not as important. What do you think about something

2.1.0-SNAPSHOT r208ab352311a6cbbcd1f7fcd40964da2dbc6703d

> It would be nice to have a builtin function that would return the Hive version.  This
would make it easier for a users and tests to programmatically check the Hive version in a
SQL script. It's also useful so a client can check the Hive version on a remote cluster.
