[jira] [Commented] (HIVE-6012) restore backward compatibility of arithmetic operations

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6012?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13889108#comment-13889108 ]

Jason Dere commented on HIVE-6012:

Had some offline discussion about the config setting to use here.  Suggestion was to use a single config setting (say, hive.compat) to control backward compatibility behavior. Rather than make the config setting a simple true/false switch, the config setting would be a string to indicate what version of Hive behavior to support (0.12, 0.13, etc). So for Thejas' example in his comment, setting hive.compat=0.12 would set int / int => double.  If there were additional (configurable) behavior changes added in 0.14, they could be disabled by setting hive.compat=0.13, or even back to 0.12 if the user still wants the old int / int behavior.
I'll try to take a crack at this.
