    Description

      After upgrading to Hive 3.1 from Hive 1.2, I can't run my queries anymore. It seems that "if not exists" is ignored in "create view".

      Example:

      1. create view if not exists test as select 1;
      2. create view if not exists test as select 1;

      The second call fails with "Table already exists: default.test". I changed this to "create or replace view" as a workaround.
