Subject Is HiveMetastoreClient a public interface?
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2012 18:50:18 GMT
No reponse from the user list. Reposting in the dev list:


It seems like the HiveMetaStoreClient is the only way to programmatically
access (and retreive)  the metastore for DDL and metadata queries as well as
retrieving delegation tokens. It isn't documented anywhere, so I'd like to
know if it is advisable to have code make use of this directly or is this an
internal API?  If the latter what would be the recommended way of
programmatically doing the previously mentioned operations?
