Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4824) make TestWebHCatE2e run w/o requiring installing external hadoop
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 16:50:54 GMT


Eugene Koifman commented on HIVE-4824:

Another possibility is to just call HCatCli directly from WebHCat - that would simplify the
architecure and improve perf of DDL ops dramatically.
One possible issue here is concurrency - hive code is not completely thread safe.  We could
use a new ClassLoader for each call to HCatCli - this would work around concurrency issues
and will still be a good step forward.

> Currently WebHCat will use hive/build/dist/hcatalog/bin/hcat to execute DDL commands,
which in turn uses Hadoop Jar command.
> This in turn requires that HADOOP_HOME env var be defined and point to an existing Hadoop
> Need to see we can apply hive/testutils/hadoop idea here to make WebHCat not depend on
external hadoop.
> This will make Unit tests better/easier to write and make dev/test cycle simpler.
