Support timestamp in Avro

Support timestamp in Avro

New Contributor

Avro has logical type timestamp and hive supports it since this patch https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-8131.

 

However i cant see this patch applied to CDH 5.8.0 build. What is the reason not to include this patch in cloudera builds of hive?

 

Thanks for your answer.

Impala currently does not support Timestamp in AVRO format, please refer to Impala upstream JIRA: IMPALA-1871. Although the upstream Hive does support Timestamp in AVRO via JIRA: HIVE-8131, in order to keep the compatibility between Hive and Impala, we decided to remove this feature from Hive until Impala supports such functionality.
