Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-322) Allow specification of Hive Database name when operating on Hive table
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2011 19:34:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-322?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13090425#comment-13090425

Alex Newman commented on SQOOP-322:

I'd be willing to take this one. The only thing I wanted to throw out there, is the solution
I was planning on creating would:

1. Create the database if it doesn't exist
2. Then it would import that data directly into the new database.

Alternative approaches that I think would be reasonable would be just to provide some easy
way in HIVE to change the database of a table easily.

Another thing to consider is whether or not we should be creating databases(Step 1). In mysql
land this would be odd, but it seems as though databases in hive are mostly syntactic sugar,
as you can easily select/join between them.
