Subject [jira] [Created] (FALCON-96) Hive client to talk to the metastore
Date Thu, 22 Aug 2013 17:11:51 GMT
Venkatesh Seetharam created FALCON-96:

             Summary: Hive client to talk to the metastore
                 Key: FALCON-96
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-96
             Project: Falcon
          Issue Type: Sub-task
    Affects Versions: 0.3
            Reporter: Venkatesh Seetharam

There are 2 choices: RPC using thrift and HTTP using webhcat. HTTP of course is preferable
but there are a few issues with it:
* Uses cli to talk to the server implying needing Hcat install and client. This is a PITA
for integration-tests.
* Also, there is no java wrapper around the RESTful APIs which returns Map and such. Need
to roll our own. 
* Runs as a separate daemon (which should eventually fold into metastore or HiveServer2).
However this is short-term and a minor annoyance.
