      Description

      Reproduce steps:

      hive> CREATE TABLE avro_union_test
          > PARTITIONED BY (p int)
          > ROW FORMAT SERDE 'org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.avro.AvroSerDe'
          > STORED AS INPUTFORMAT 'org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.io.avro.AvroContainerInputFormat'
          > OUTPUTFORMAT 'org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.io.avro.AvroContainerOutputFormat'
          > TBLPROPERTIES ('avro.schema.literal'='{
          >    "type":"record",
          >    "name":"nullUnionTest",
          >    "fields":[
          >       {
          >          "name":"value",
          >          "type":[
          >             "null",
          >             "int",
          >             "long"
          >          ],
          >          "default":null
          >       }
          >    ]
          > }');

      Another test case to show this problem is:

      hive> create table avro_union_test2 (value uniontype<int,bigint>) stored as avro;
      OK
      Time taken: 0.053 seconds
      hive> show create table avro_union_test2;
      OK
      CREATE TABLE `avro_union_test2`(
        `value` uniontype<void,int,bigint> COMMENT '')
      ROW FORMAT SERDE
        'org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.avro.AvroSerDe'
      STORED AS INPUTFORMAT
        'org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.io.avro.AvroContainerInputFormat'
      OUTPUTFORMAT
        'org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.io.avro.AvroContainerOutputFormat'
      LOCATION
        'hdfs://localhost/user/hive/warehouse/avro_union_test2'
      TBLPROPERTIES (
        'transient_lastDdlTime'='1468173589')
      Time taken: 0.051 seconds, Fetched: 12 row(s)
      

      Although column value is defined as uniontype<int,bigint> in create table command, its type becomes uniontype<void,int,bigint> after table is defined. Hive accidentally make the nullable definition in avro schema (["null", "int", "long"]) into union definition.
