Dear All,

I need to develop a custom functions in SyncSort DMX-H using Java/Scala/Groovy i.e other than C / C++. Is it possible to develop, if yes could you please share the documentation for the same.

Below is my requirement :

Left hand side is a data value in raw format and I need to convert it into right hand side format i.e. eventually into ISO format. We are missing seconds when we try to convert using TO_DATE function.

Could you please suggest a better solution to handle this in SyncSort DMX-H (this is a column value from one Hive table to another Hive table)

  • Kishore,

    I am not sure I understand what you are looking to do based on your examples. The formats on the left side seem to be different. 

    In general though, DMX-h supports Hive tables and if the data is defined in Hive as a Datetime type then DMX should be able to handle it. If you are looking to change the format of the data you can use a datetime mask in your reformat to change the format of the date and only include the components you want.

    Does that help?
