Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-987) Hive CLI Omnibus Improvement ticket
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2011 20:08:30 GMT


John Sichi commented on HIVE-987:

Note that for the real thing, we would not want to use the Hadoop wrapper scripts; there's
no need to drag in all of that.  The sqlline client can be very thin (just the sqlline jar
plus jline and the Hive JDBC client jar).

> Hive CLI Omnibus Improvement ticket
> -----------------------------------
>                 Key: HIVE-987
>                 URL:
>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: CLI
>            Reporter: Carl Steinbach
>         Attachments: HIVE-987.1.patch, HIVE-987.2.patch, sqlline-1.0.8_eb.jar
> Add the following features to the Hive CLI:
> * Command History
> * ReadLine support
> ** HIVE-120: Add readline support/support for alt-based commands in the CLI
> ** Java-ReadLine is LGPL, but it depends on GPL readline library. We probably need to
use JLine instead.
> * Tab completion
> ** HIVE-97: tab completion for hive cli
> * Embedded/Standalone CLI modes, and ability to connect to different Hive Server instances.
> ** HIVE-818: Create a Hive CLI that connects to hive ThriftServer
> * .hiverc configuration file
> ** HIVE-920: .hiverc doesnt work
> * Improved support for comments.
> ** HIVE-430: Ability to comment desired for hive query files
> * Different output formats
> ** HIVE-49: display column header on CLI
> ** XML output format
> For additional inspiration we may want to look at the Postgres psql shell:
> Finally, it would be really cool if we implemented this in a generic fashion and spun
it off as an apache-commons
> shell framework. It seems like most of the Apache Hadoop projects have their own shells,
and I'm sure the same is true
> for non-Hadoop Apache projects as well.
