Re: Hive UDAF extending UDAF class: iterate or evaluate method

Please follow the guidance for UDF provided in the Hive Programming book by Wampler/Capriolo. That will work for u.

I can say with confidence that their book was mighty helpful to me in my project from start to production...

And I would recommend go ahead with a way, implement and then fine tune otherwise u will be in analysis paralysis mode…

We are all on a  path of discovery here ...

Hi Sanjay, Lefty

Thanks for the help but none of above responses directly answering my question (probably I am not asking clear enough :-(  ).

Below I have two different structure of a UDAF (aggregation function). My question is which one is the preferred/right approach

http://pastebin.com/QCgd4Hxc  : This version is based on based on what I could understand from API docs about UDAF class.

http://pastebin.com/Uctamtek : This version is based on the book Hadoop The definitive guide. Notice the function names for different from the first one.

I hope this clarifies my question.

Thanks
Ritesh

Sounds like the wikidoc needs some work.  I'm open to suggestions.  If Sanjay's simple UDF helps, I could put it in the wiki along with any advice you think would help.

Does anyone else have use cases to contribute?

Hi Ritesh

To help u get started , I am writing a simple HelloWorld-ish UDF that might help…If it doesn't please ask for more clarifications...

Good Luck
Thanks

Hi Lefty,

I used the wiki you sent to write my first version of UDAF. However, I found it to be utterly complex, especially for storing partial results as I am not very familiar with hive API. Then I found another example of UDAF in the hadoop the definitive guide book and it had much simpler code but using different method. Instead of using iterate it was using evaluate method and so I am getting confused.

You might find this wikidoc useful:  GenericUDAFCaseStudy<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/GenericUDAFCaseStudy>.

The O'Reilly book "Programming Hive" also has a section called "User-Defined Aggregate Functions" in chapter 13 (Functions), pages 172 to 176.

Hi all,

I am trying to write a UDAF function. I found an example that shows how to implement a UDAF in "Hadoop The Definitive Guide" book. However I am little confused. In the book, the author extends UDAF class and implements init, iterate, terminatePartial,  merge and terminate function. However looking at the hive docs (http://hive.apache.org/docs/r0.11.0/api/org/apache/hadoop/hive/ql/exec/UDAF.html), it seems I need to implement init, aggregate, evaluatePartial, aggregatePartial and evaluate function. Please let me know what are the write functions to implement.
