Spark SQL fails on empty ORC table, HDP 2.4.2

Explorer

A simple scenario, create an empty orc table using Hive, then try to query the table using Spark

Hive:
create table tbl(name string) stored as orc;
Spark:
sqlContext.sql("select * from tbl") // even collect is not needed to see the error!

Here is the error:

16/07/11 15:09:21 INFO ParseDriver: Parsing command: select * from tbl
16/07/11 15:09:22 INFO ParseDriver: Parse Completed

Now I know what is going on, there is a ticket in progress at moment called "Enable OrcRelation even when connecting via spark thrift server", https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-12998

But you can find it as a release improvement on HDP 2.4.2, https://github.com/hortonworks/spark-release/blob/HDP-2.4.2.0-tag/HDP-CHANGES.txt

To conclude, Spark in Hortonworks could be slightly different from main Spark!

Now this is a workaround to disable the improvement and directly read the schema from Hive metastore:

sqlContext.setConf("spark.sql.hive.convertMetastoreOrc", "false")

There is also an open jira ticket since March

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-14286

I think this bug fix is also related to the issue

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-8501

Is there any workaround/Patch available for the same in HDP 2.4.2 .. Becasue on HDP 2.3.6 said scenario is working fine on Spark Version 1.5.2.. below is sample:

[root@****-1316 ~]# spark-sql SET hive.support.sql11.reserved.keywords=false SET spark.sql.hive.version=1.2.1 SET spark.sql.hive.version=1.2.1 spark-sql> create table customer1(id int ,name string, email string) clustered by (id) into 2 buckets stored as orc ; OK Time taken: 5.225 seconds spark-sql> select * from customer1; Time taken: 0.402 seconds spark-sql>

@Mahan Hosseinzadeh Which configuration file should I set

"spark.sql.hive.convertMetastoreOrc","false" ?

Not work in hive-site.xml

Explorer

@Huahua Wei this is a spark specific configuration is not in hive-site.xml! set it in your application or from Ambari

Rising Star

@Mahan Hosseinzadeh in Ambari, which section should I set

spark.sql.hive.convertMetastoreOrc ?

11173-9zzr4.png

or

11174-o7w3o.png

or elsewhere?

New Contributor

In ambari its Custom spark-defaults.

Value : spark.sql.hive.convertMetastoreOrc=false

Thanks @Mahan Hosseinzadeh!

I had a similar issue and your solution worked for me. I was trying to read from a hive table using the hive context.

This was the error I got, in case it's useful for someone else.
