ObjectInspectorConvertors#UnionConvertor does a faulty conversion

    Details

      Description

      Currently the UnionConvertor in the ObjectInspectorConvertors class has an issue with the convert method where it attempts to convert the objectinspector itself instead of converting the field.[1]. This should be changed to convert the field itself. This could result in a ClassCastException as shown below:

      Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.lazy.objectinspector.LazyUnionObjectInspector cannot be cast to org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.lazy.LazyString
