Impala support for custom serde

New Contributor

Any comments on when impala is planning to support custom serde ? Also, can these be written in Java, rather than C++ ?

 

Thanks,

Hi Manoj -

 

There are currently no plans to support custom serdes, as Impala depends heavily on effecient scanners for each of the supported file formats. Instead of Serdes, Impala plans on shipping specially tuned scanner implementations for each of the popular Hadoop file formats. 

 

I hope this answers your question.
