Hi all,

I found an enum TableType in package org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore. What's 
the difference between MANAGED_TABLE and EXTERNAL_TABLE?

Will the table be an EXTERNAL TABLE with setting table type EXTERNAL_TABLE when 
creating table?

I found the code to determine whether a table is an external table in 


I'm confused what is EXTERNAL_TABLE in TableType for?
