Is it possible to define structure types for udfs? ( Or what will be the best way to return several double numbers from udf?

I'm afraid complex types, e.g., structs are currently not supported as UDF return or argument types.


As a workaround you could try the following solutions:

- pack the two doubles into a DECIMAL(38,0) or STRING

- you'll need a second UDF to unpack the individual doubles
