>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: WebHCat
>    Affects Versions: 0.11.0

> webhcat-default.xml (webhcat-stie.xml) has templeton.hive.properties which specifies
values of some properties to pass to hive, in particular hive.metastore.uris.  This is then
passes as a start up parameter to Hive when WebHCat launches Hive to execute a query.  (The
design is that for job submission WebHCat expects a Hive metastore to be running somewhere.)
> On the other hand, when a DDL operation is executed, WebHCat ignores webhcat-default.xml
and expects hive-site.xml to contain hive.mestastore.uris, etc.
> This is very confusing (unless you happen to know this).
> There should be a single source of truth.
> Since we always expect Hive to be installed on the machine running WebHCat (to execute
DDL command), we should probably get rid of templeton.hive.properties in webhcat-default/site.xml
and get this from hive-site.xml.
