Re: [DISCUSS] Integrate Flink SQL well with Hive ecosystem


Hi Xiaowei,

Thanks for bringing up the question. In the current design, the properties for meta objects are meant to cover anything that's specific to a particular catalog and agnostic to Flink. Anything that is common (such as schema for tables, query text for views, and udf classname) are abstracted as members of the respective classes. However, this is still in discussion, and Timo and I will go over this and provide an update.

Please note that UDF is a little more involved than what the current design doc shows. I'm still refining this part.

Thanks,
Xuefu

Subject:Re: [DISCUSS] Integrate Flink SQL well with Hive ecosystem

Thanks Xuefu for the detailed design doc! One question on the properties associated with the catalog objects. Are we going to leave them completely free form or we are going to set some standard for that? I think that the answer may depend on if we want to explore catalog specific optimization opportunities. In any case, I think that it might be helpful for standardize as much as possible into strongly typed classes and use leave these properties for catalog specific things. But I think that we can do it in steps.

Thanks for keeping on improving the overall design, Xuefu! It looks quite
 good to me now.

 Would be nice that cc-ed Flink committers can help to review and confirm!



 One minor suggestion: Since the last section of design doc already touches
 some new sql statements, shall we add another section in our doc and
 formalize the new sql statements in SQL Client and TableEnvironment that
 are gonna come along naturally with our design? Here are some that the
 design doc mentioned and some that I came up with:

 To be added:

    - USE <catalog> - set default catalog
    - USE <catalog.schema> - set default schema
    - SHOW CATALOGS - show all registered catalogs
    - SHOW SCHEMAS [FROM catalog] - list schemas in the current default
    catalog or the specified catalog
    - DESCRIBE VIEW view - show the view's definition in CatalogView
    - SHOW VIEWS [FROM schema/catalog.schema] - show views from current or a
    specified schema.

    (DDLs that can be addressed by either our design or Shuyi's DDL design)

    - CREATE/DROP/ALTER SCHEMA schema
    - CREATE/DROP/ALTER CATALOG catalog

 To be modified:

    - SHOW TABLES [FROM schema/catalog.schema] - show tables from current or
    a specified schema. Add 'from schema' to existing 'SHOW TABLES' statement
    - SHOW FUNCTIONS [FROM schema/catalog.schema] - show functions from
    current or a specified schema. Add 'from schema' to existing 'SHOW TABLES'
    statement'


 Thanks, Bowen
