Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-10267) HIVE-9664 makes hive depend on ivysettings.xml
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2015 21:23:12 GMT
Sushanth Sowmyan created HIVE-10267:

             Summary: HIVE-9664 makes hive depend on ivysettings.xml
                 Key: HIVE-10267
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
            Reporter: Sushanth Sowmyan
            Assignee: Anant Nag

HIVE-9664 makes hive depend on the existence of ivysettings.xml, and if it is not present,
it makes hive NPE when instantiating a CLISessionState.

at org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.session.DependencyResolver.<init>(
at org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.session.SessionState.<init>(
at org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.session.SessionState.<init>(
at org.apache.hadoop.hive.cli.CliSessionState.<init>(

This happens because of the following bit:

    // If HIVE_HOME is not defined or file is not found in HIVE_HOME/conf then load default
ivysettings.xml from class loader
    if (ivysettingsPath == null || !(new File(ivysettingsPath).exists())) {
      ivysettingsPath = ClassLoader.getSystemResource("ivysettings.xml").getFile();
      _console.printInfo("ivysettings.xml file not found in HIVE_HOME or HIVE_CONF_DIR," +
ivysettingsPath + " will be used");

This makes it so that an attempt to instantiate CliSessionState without an ivysettings.xml
file will cause hive to fail with an NPE. Hive should not have a hard dependency on a ivysettings,xml
being present, and this feature should gracefully fail in that case instead.
