I read on the VLBD hive paper "Hive - A Warehousing Solution Over a
that Partitions could have different schemas : (section 3.1 MetaStore) "
Partition - Each partition can have its own columns
and SerDe and storage information. This can be used
in the future to support schema evolution in a Hive
but the API:
only lists getSchema() for Table, and Partition does not have a
is the schema evolution feature really there?
