RE: has bzip2 compression been deprecated?
Thanks for this Bejoy, very helpful.

So, to summarise: when I CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE in Hive, the STORED AS, ROW FORMAT and other parameters you mention are telling Hive what to expect when it reads the data I want to analyse, despite not checking the data to see if it meets these criteria?

Do these guidelines still apply if the table is not EXTERNAL?

Hi Tony
       As  I understand your requirement, your mapreduce job produces a
Sequence File as ouput and you need to use this file as an input to hive
        When you CREATE and EXTERNAL Table in hive you specify a location
where your data is stored and also what is the format of that data( like
the field delimiter,row delimiter, file type etc of your data). You are
actually not loading data any where when you create a hive external
table(issue DDL), just specifying where the data lies in file system in
fact there is not even any validation performed that time to check on the
data quality. When you Query/Retrive your data  through Hive QLs the
parameters specified along with CREATE TABLE as ROW FORMAT,FILEDS
TERMINATED, STORED AS etc are used to execute the right MAP REDUCE job(s).

     In short STORED AS refer to the type of files that a table's data
directory holds.

For details

Hope it helps!..
