Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-12983) Provide a builtin function to get Hive version
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2016 00:01:39 GMT


Szehon Ho commented on HIVE-12983:

Yea sounds better.

I think it still makes it a bit more tricky for an end-user to parse (as I imagine they probably
only care about the major.minor version, in a sql script).  But its not unreasonable, go for
it if you feel it has a good use-case.

> 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.
