Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-2152) Hive throws an NPE if hive-default.xml.
Date Mon, 09 May 2011 18:42:03 GMT
Hive throws an NPE if hive-default.xml.

                 Key: HIVE-2152
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Diagnosability
    Affects Versions: 0.7.0
            Reporter: Joey Echeverria

If you don't have hive-default.xml in your classpath, you get the following error when you
try to show tables in the the hive shell:

hive> show tables; 
FAILED: Error in metadata: java.lang.NullPointerException 
FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask

It would be a lot more useful to print message indicating that hive-default.xml. This problem
will become mute if HIVE-1530 gets accepted.
