can the JSON serializer for the HIVE SINK handle nested JSON?

Master Collaborator

the document is saying as below but its not clear if and how the nested JSON will work

The following serializers are provided for Hive sink: 
JSON:                        Handles UTF8 encoded Json (strict syntax) events and requires no                        configuration. Object names in the JSON are mapped directly to columns with                        the same name in the Hive table. Internally uses                        org.apache.hive.hcatalog.data.JsonSerDe but is independent of the Serde of                        the Hive table. This serializer requires HCatalog to be installed.
DELIMITED: Handles simple delimited textual                        events. Internally uses LazySimpleSerde but is independent of the Serde of                        the Hive table.
