             Summary: Handle IF [NOT] EXISTS during create and drop table 
through the Kudu API
                 Key: KUDU-1710
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KUDU-1710
             Project: Kudu
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: impala
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
            Reporter: Dimitris Tsirogiannis

Currently Impala handles IF [NOT] EXISTS for creating and dropping Kudu tables 
by first checking if the table exists and then making the associated API call 
to Kudu. However, these two operations are not atomic and hence may result in 
inconsistent states and weird error messages. Ideally, the Kudu API should 
handle the IF [NOT] EXISTS case and ensure atomicity.
