Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-344) Fix the Hive CLI to run on cygwin under windows
Date Fri, 07 Aug 2009 09:33:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-344?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12740479#action_12740479

Amr Awadallah commented on HIVE-344:

unfortunately HIVE_LIB is checked for validity inside these files using normal bash commands,
so the cygpath translation for HIVE_LIB has to be done this late as opposed to in the main
hive script (otherwise the verification in sub-scripts would fail).

> Yes, I am guilty as charged, I don't use mac like the rest of you :)
> The Hive CLI currently doesn't work with cygwin under windows, this is due to the dual
path model that cygwin employs (there are file paths relative to the cygwin virtual root,
and file paths relative to the windows root)
> Since Sun's JDK is installed under the windows environment, if the paths are not converted
to windows format before being passed along then java will be at a loss to where the files
are. The solution is to use the cygpath command to convert the paths to windows format before
passing along to java world.
> I have a fix for this already, still doing some further testing (to make sure it works
under both unix and windows environments), then I will submit patch to this bug (should submit
before end of this week).
> Cheers,
