Re: Nullpointer Exception when using UDF
neelesh gadhia 2013-02-14, 17:04

Below is the code I got/used from https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2361/
I have attached the file that has all the UDF's ( of which I am using GenericUDFMax and GenericUDFSum) that fails with same errors at same point.

And also realize I tried using other udf (GenericUDFMax) and it fails exactly at the same point.

Code for GenericUDFSum as shown below.
