      Description

      This addresses HIVE-1245 in part, for atomic or primitive types.

      The serde property "hbase.columns.storage.types" = ",b,b,b,b,b,b,b,b" is a specification of the storage option for the corresponding column in the serde property "hbase.columns.mapping". Allowed values are '' for table default, 's' for standard string storage, and 'b' for binary storage as would be obtained from o.a.h.hbase.utils.Bytes. Map types for HBase column families use a colon separated pair such as 's:b' for the key and value part specifiers respectively. See the test cases and queries for HBase handler for additional examples.

      There is also a table property "hbase.table.default.storage.type" = "string" to specify a table level default storage type. The other valid specification is "binary". The table level default is overridden by a column level specification.

      This control is available for the boolean, tinyint, smallint, int, bigint, float, and double primitive types. The attached patch also relaxes the mapping of map types to HBase column families to allow any primitive type to be the map key.

      Attached is a program for creating a table and populating it in HBase. The external table in Hive can access the data as shown in the example below.

      hive> create external table TestHiveHBaseExternalTable
      > (key string, c_bool boolean, c_byte tinyint, c_short smallint,
      > c_int int, c_long bigint, c_string string, c_float float, c_double double)
      > stored by 'org.apache.hadoop.hive.hbase.HBaseStorageHandler'
      > with serdeproperties ("hbase.columns.mapping" = ":key,cf:boolean,cf:byte,cf:short,cf:int,cf:long,cf:string,cf:float,cf:double")
      > tblproperties ("hbase.table.name" = "TestHiveHBaseExternalTable");
