You can use explode function that is an udf in hive: like this
SELECT explode(ActivityDates) AS ActivityDates FROM myMapTable;
and think who to map the result whith rates ;)

> I have the following requirement from a Hive table below.
> CustNum ActivityDates Rates
> 100 10-Aug-13,12-Aug-13,20-Aug-13 10,15,20
> The data above says that
> From 10 Aug to 11 Aug the rate is 10.
> From 12 Aug to 19 Aug the rate is 15.
> From 20-Aug to till date the rate is 20.
> Note : The order is maintained in 'ActivityDates' and 'Rates'.
> From the above table , I need to find the rate on say a given date
> 15-Aug-13. In the above case , the rate for 15-Aug-13 is 15.
> How should I get this result in Hive.
> I was reading about a Generic UDF and was thinking to write one like this.
