RE: urldecode hive column
I used reflect to urldecode like below and it works great.

SELECT reflect("java.net.URLDecoder", "decode","to be decoded value) from footable limit 1;

I have to start building UDF at somepoint.  I am deferring that for now.

Thank you Loren and Carl for the ideas and your time.

Thank you,

That is cool! I didn't know this feature existed at all.

I've been using https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual as the online manual for Hive, and I don't see 'reflect' mentioned there. I see it here, though: http://archive.cloudera.com/cdh/3/hive/udf/reflect.html. This archive site also contains some good info on variable substitution in Hive scripts, which I didn't know was available either.

Thanks for the tip on 'reflect' !

It's possible to call Java static methods directly using the built-in
'reflect' UDF. The performance will not be as good as writing your
own UDF, but you'll get results a lot faster.

Thank you! Loren.  So far I have only using hive as is.  Looks like I have to start extending :)

You need to write a UDF, like this person did:

I have a situation where I need to do urldecode on one particular column.  Is there any hive built in function available?
