Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-30) Hive web interface
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2008 05:06:44 GMT


Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-30:

I do understand the concept of having a session server. A simplified superset of meta store
and data operations would be a good thing. A lite client is better then the 'fat client' that
exists now. I understand that Thift is language neutral but I see the thrift server looks
like it is implemented in c++ (correct me if I am wrong.)

Playing devils advocate:
>From the prospective a guy writing a Java JSP application. I should be able to harness
direct Java classes. JDBC and Thrift Servers should sit on top of those. I would get a little
cranky if the only way I could hook into some particular library was to go out and start getting
c++ libraries, so I could start a C++ based thrift server to get at some data in Java. 

Can the superset be a pure Java facade and thrift jdbc on top of that? 

That being said, if a SessionServer is out there I will gladly hook into it.

> Hive needs a web interface. The initial checkin should have:
> * simple schema browsing
> * query submission
> * query history (similar to MySQL's SHOW PROCESSLIST)
> A suggested feature: the ability to have a query notify the user when it's completed.
> Edward Capriolo has expressed some interest in driving this process.
