Java ORC tool, buckets and Amazon Athena

Java ORC tool, buckets and Amazon Athena

New Contributor

Dear friends,


I am using Java ORC tool (https://orc.apache.org/docs/java-tools.html) to convert JSON records into ORC files. I am querying the ORC files on Amazon Athena. It is working like a charm.

My question: can I use the same Java ORC tool to convert JSON records into a bucketed ORC table?

If not, should I use Apache Hive to perform the conversion from JSON records into a bucketed ORC table?

I want to see if bucketed ORC files increase the performance of my queries on Amazon Athena.

I look forward to hearing from you.


All the best,

Alex.
