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.

Allowing Modeler to produce SQL statement with some modification to meet HIVE Database parser limitation

By enabling SQL optimization Modeler will create SQL statement correspondence with the process performs in each node on the stream. When HIVE database use as data source, in a specific stream, the SQL statement created by Modeler could not be processed correctly by HIVE database. For example, the simple stream which contains combination of Filler and Distinct node, produce following SQL statement which causing “ParseException” error on HIVE database.


INSERT INTO spssdb.table02 (a,b,c) SELECT T0.a AS a,T0.b AS b,T0.c AS c FROM (SELECT T0.a AS a,T0.b AS b,T0.c AS c,T0.`ROW_NUMBER` AS `ROW_NUMBER` FROM (SELECT (CASE WHEN 0=1 THEN 0 ELSE T0.a END) AS a,T0.b AS b,T0.c AS c,ROW_NUMBER() OVER ( PARTITION BY (CASE WHEN 0=1 THEN 0 ELSE T0.a END),T0.b ORDER BY T0.c ASC) AS `ROW_NUMBER` FROM spssdb.table01 T0) T0 WHERE (T0.`ROW_NUMBER` = 1)) T0



Above SQL statement created by Modeler is a valid statement. So, HIVE parser should able to handle format used by this SQL statement since it adheres SQL92 format.


This issue might have related with following HIVE problem:


But, since currently there is no workaround for this kind of issue, we are strongly request an enhancement to allow Modeler produce SQL statement with some modification to meet HIVE Database parser limitation.
