The example code for inline_table() there has static data. It's not possible to use a subquery inside the inline_table() or array() is it?
The SQL1999 way is described here:
CREATE TABLE table_a(a int, b int, c int);
INSERT INTO table_a
SELECT a, b, ARRAY(SELECT c FROM table_c WHERE table_c.parent = table_b.id)

This might fit the bill.

Is the only way to INSERT data into a column of type array<> to load data from a pre-existing file, to use hard-coded values in the INSERT statement, or copy an entire array verbatim from another table? I.e. I'm assuming that a) SQL1999 array INSERT via subquery is not (yet) implemented in Hive, and b) there is also no other way to load dynamically generated data into an array<> column? If my assumption in a) is true, does a Jira item need to be created for it?
