Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-6593) Create a maven assembly for hive-jdbc
Date Sat, 08 Mar 2014 00:46:46 GMT
Mark Grover created HIVE-6593:

             Summary: Create a maven assembly for hive-jdbc
                 Key: HIVE-6593
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build Infrastructure
    Affects Versions: 0.12.0
            Reporter: Mark Grover

Currently in Apache Bigtop we bundle and distribute Hive. In particular, for users to not
have to install the entirety of Hive on machines that are just jdbc clients, we have a special
package which is a subset of hive, called hive-jdbc that bundles only the jdbc driver jar
and it's dependencies.

However, because Hive doesn't have an assembly for the jdbc jar, we have to hack and hardcode
the list of jdbc jars and it's dependencies:

As Hive moves to Maven, it would be pretty fantastic if Hive could leverage the maven-assembly-plugin
and generate a .tar.gz assembly for what's required for jdbc gateway machines. That we can
simply take that distribution and build a jdbc package from it without having to hard code
jar names and dependencies. That would make the process much less error prone.
