Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-20580) OrcInputFormat.isOriginal() should not rely on hive.acid.key.index
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2019 16:52:00 GMT


Peter Vary commented on HIVE-20580:

[~ashutoshc]: isOriginal(Footer) is called from {{}}
consturcor to set the {{isOriginalFormat}} attribute, which in turn is used for the implementation
of the {{org.apache.orc.FileMetadata.isOriginalFormat()}} method:
public final class OrcFileMetadata implements FileMetadata, ConsumerFileMetadata {
  public OrcFileMetadata(Object fileKey, OrcProto.Footer footer, OrcProto.PostScript ps,
    List<StripeStatistics> stats, List<StripeInformation> stripes, final OrcFile.Version
fileVersion) {
    this.isOriginalFormat = OrcInputFormat.isOriginal(footer);
  public boolean isOriginalFormat() {
    return isOriginalFormat;
Shall the {{OrcFileMetadata.isOriginalFormat()}} method throw an \{{java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException}}

> {{}} is checking for presence
of {{hive.acid.key.index}} in the footer.  This is only created when the file is written by
{{OrcRecordUpdater}}.  It should instead check for presence of Acid metadata columns so that
a file can be produced by something other than {{OrcRecordUpater}}.
> Also, {{hive.acid.key.index}} counts number of different type of events which is not
really useful for Acid V2 (as of Hive 3) since each file only has 1 type of event.
