RE: Limit to columns or nesting of Hive table?
Thanks. So is the nesting limit 10 now? Does your 2nd paragraph mean that this limit cannot easily be raised?

There is an open jira ticket on this. There is a hard coded limit but it could be raised with some mostly minor code changes.

One of the bigger problems is that hive stores the definition of a column in JDBC "column" and for some databases larger nested structs can case issues.
