Hive is having an improvised explain plan with the hive.explain.user set to true. Now the indentation and arrows clearly depict the execution flow. Retrieving the join order needed a lot of back and forth references in the old style which was made as easy as following the arrows now, even with the details of mappers and reducers.

Let us take a look at one sample explain plan and retrieve the join order

Plan optimized by CBO.
Vertex dependency in root stage
Map 2 <- Map 1 (BROADCAST_EDGE), Map 4 (BROADCAST_EDGE), Map 5 (BROADCAST_EDGE), Map 6 (BROADCAST_EDGE), Map 7 (BROADCAST_EDGE), Map 8 (BROADCAST_EDGE), Map 9 (BROADCAST_EDGE)

1. Start reading from the bottom

2. Look for the keyword 'TableScan', the row below it will have the details of the tables being joined

3. Look for the keyword 'Join Operator', the indent of this line will tell us the tables that are part of this join

4. This joined table group will form candidate for another join if the line starts with '<-'

5. Similarly keep going to top to get the complete join order

The join order in the above example boils down to (title(t),(((movie_companies(mc),(cast_info(ci),(company_name(cn),aka_name(an),char_name(chn)))),name(n)),role_type(rt)))
