--------------------------------------

             Summary: Make the Hive HBaseStorageHandler work under HCat
                 Key: HIVE-4524
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-4524
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HBase Handler, HCatalog
            Reporter: Sushanth Sowmyan
            Assignee: Sushanth Sowmyan


Currently, HCatalog has its own HCatHBaseStorageHandler that extends from HBaseStorageHandler
to allow for StorageHandler support, and does some translations, like org.apache.mapred->org.apache.mapreduce
wrapping, etc. However, this compatibility layer is not complete in functionality as it still
assumes the underlying OutputFormat is a mapred.OutputFormat implementation as opposed to
a HiveOutputFormat implementation, and it makes assumptions about config property copies that
implementations of the HiveStorageHandler, such as the HBaseStorageHandler do not do.

To fix this, we need to improve the ability for HCat to properly load native-hive-style StorageHandlers.

Also, since HCat has its own HBaseStorageHandler and we'd like to not maintain two separate
HBaseStorageHandlers, the idea is to deprecate HCat's storage handler over time, and make
sure that hive's HBaseStorageHandler works properly from HCat, and over time, have it reach
feature parity with the HCat one.
