HIVE-2908(http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1308427) that went into hive 0.9 has API changes to DropTableDesc and this breaks hcatalog trunk (0.5) build.
PartitionSpec should have a API for getting partition filter string instead of using toString()
Patch checked in. Thanks for your quick response on this Rohini.
PartitionSpec does not have any getters. So had to use .toString() similar to how it is being done in hive code
Raised HIVE-2922 for a proper API instead of toString().
