Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-13670) Improve Beeline reconnect semantics
Date Thu, 05 May 2016 17:52:12 GMT


Gunther Hagleitner commented on HIVE-13670:

If you're introducing saved variables, I think you should have a full set of CRUD to deal
with them. I think the current patch doesn't allow you to unset or list them. It's also strange
to limit their use to this one place - the connect string. One way to introduce them would
be to replace them with their value in any !<statement> before evaluation.

You also don't have a naming scheme for the variables. And if they clash with a property you
use that instead. Finally the way it's invoked is by a fallback in an error case (failed to
connect using string, fallback to see if it's a variable). Why not invoke them with $<var>
and enforce <letter><alphanum>* ?

> For most users of beeline, chances are that they will be using it with a single HS2 instance
most of the time. In this scenario, having them type out a jdbc uri for HS2 every single time
to !connect can get tiresome. Thus, we should improve semantics so that if a user does a successful
!connect, then we must store the last-connected-to-url, so that if they do a !close, and then
a !reconnect, then !reconnect should attempt to connect to the last successfully used url.
> Also, if they then do a !save, then that last-successfully-used url must be saved, so
that in subsequent sessions, they can simply do !reconnect rather than specifying a url for
