Subject Creating/reading empty Parquet files
Date Thu, 04 Jul 2019 06:54:39 GMT
We have a use case involving a union across multiple parquet files. One of
the source parquet files used in union was generated using an empty CTAS
(query didn't select any record) and resulted in creating no output files.
The union query failed in this case because of the absence of the source

Is there any way to generate an empty parquet on an empty CTAS?
There is already a reported issue -

Drill also fails to read empty parquet files generated using Apache Spark.
Drill 16 fails to read Meta information from an empty parquet. Drill 1.15
can read the meta and succeeds in reading a directory with some empty files.
