I'm trying to fetch data from hive server using hive ODBC driver.
I observed that strings being fetched at application side are truncated to length 334, I further looked into the hiveclient code and found there are two variables which are hardcoded to “334”
./src/odbc/src/cpp/thriftserverconstants.h:static const int MAX_DISPLAY_SIZE = 334;
./src/odbc/src/cpp/thriftserverconstants.h:static const int MAX_BYTE_LENGTH = 334;
I tried finding usage of these variables and looks like MAX_BYTE_LENGTH is causing issue of string truncation.
abhi@vmabhihive:~/hhh/ts/hive-0.8.1$ find . -type f -name "*.h" | xargs grep "MAX_BYTE_LENGTH"
./src/odbc/src/cpp/HiveRowSet.h: /// Forces all data retrieved to be no more than MAX_BYTE_LENGTH
./src/odbc/src/cpp/HiveRowSet.h: char m_field_buffer[MAX_BYTE_LENGTH + 1];
Expected behavior : Strings should be read completely [or upto length of application specified buffer length] instead of getting truncated to length 334.
