IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Workspace Db2 Big SQL
Created by Guest
Created on Jul 18, 2018

Allow recursive directory read as hive does.

Hive developer in our organization prefers to create the multiple subdirectories to store the data inside parent directory mentioned in DDL for unpartitioned tables but bigsql only looks up for ORC files in parent directory. It doesnt even bother checking subdirectories. Hive instead read all the sub directories and displays the result.

 

Example - create table t1 ( c1 int) location hdfs:///tmp stored as orc;

 

Now the developers have created few sub folders inside the parent /tmp directory in hdfs to store the data.

 

/tmp/part/00001/00000.orc

/tmp/part/00002/00000.orc

 

In this scenario, bigsql only tries to read the data from /tmp directory and display an empty table because it cannot read the data recursively.
