Bugs: HIVE-9877

Repository: hive-git


This patch is to enhance Beeline to be able to run multiple commands from a line which is
passed in via beeline console, -e or -f. In addition, it also fixes an NPE when reading command
from a file (via -f) if that line of command is not terminated by ";"


  beeline/src/java/org/apache/hive/beeline/ 291adbab3b5fcb2335679a32b1f812f12358a491



Manual tests have been done and all passed.
1. Beeline console for following commands:
 a. use a ; show tables; -- beeline executes two commands and its console displays all tables
under db a 
 b. use a ; show tables -- beeline console prompts for more input, after typing in ";" it
executes two commands and displays tables under db a
 c. use a ;  show databases; show tables;"   -- beeline executes all three commands and its
console displays all databases, and tables under db a
 d. use a ;  #show databases; show tables;"  -- beeline only executes "use a" command and
skip rest cmds like "show databases" and "show tables"
2. commands passed in via -e option:
 a. -e "use a ; show tables; "
 b. -e "use a ; show tables" -- display tables under db a even without ; at the end of line
 c. -e "use a ;  show databases; show tables"   -- display all databases, and display tables
under db a
 d. -e "use a ;  #show databases; show tables"  -- skip cmds show databases; show tables

3. commands read from a file via -f option, file includes following commands:
show databases; #display all databases;
use a; show tables;
use a; show databases; #show tables; #do not show databases;
#do not have the ; at the end of following cmd
show databases
