      Description

      HIve 2.1.0 is throwing InvalidObjectException(message:Invalid column type name is too long

      If you go through MetaStoreUtils.java you can see MAX_MS_TYPENAME_LENGTH is hard coded to 2000, but this can be set to higher value in mysql.Table create doesn't happen , for tables with higher type length. Different users can change this variable based on different use cases/metastore if this can be a config variable.

      public static final int MAX_MS_TYPENAME_LENGTH = 2000;

      public static final String TYPE_FROM_DESERIALIZER = "<derived from deserializer>";
      /**

      • validate column type
        *
      • if it is predefined, yes. otherwise no
      • @param name
      • @return
        */
        static public String validateColumnType(String type) {
        if (type.equals(TYPE_FROM_DESERIALIZER)) return null;
        if (type.length() > MAX_MS_TYPENAME_LENGTH) { return "type name is too long: " + type; }
