Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-946) Use Phoenix to service Hive queries over HBase data
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2014 16:22:29 GMT


Andrew Purtell commented on PHOENIX-946:

bq. If you want to just query Phoenix data, use Phoenix directly, and get all the performance
gains available by doing that. If you want to combine Phoenix data with non-HBase data, use

This describes the current situation. So then as Nick says make sure hive can serde Phoenix
types and understands how to read schema out of the system table and you're done. It's a good
interoperability story if both Phoenix and Hive are being used somewhere, but as today the
Hive experience going against HBase data sources will be relatively poor compared to what
is possible. 

I don't see how Hive can use Phoenix server side pieces without knowing a lot of details of
Phoenix internals that are likely to change incompatibly from release to release but maybe
you will have a stable API for the coprocessor endpoints or put one in place for Hive etc.
