Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-14064) beeline to auto connect to the HiveServer2
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:23:58 GMT
Vihang Karajgaonkar created HIVE-14064:

             Summary: beeline to auto connect to the HiveServer2
                 Key: HIVE-14064
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Beeline
            Reporter: Vihang Karajgaonkar
            Assignee: Vihang Karajgaonkar
            Priority: Minor

Currently one has to give an jdbc:hive2 url in order for Beeline to connect a hiveserver2
instance. It would be great if Beeline can get the info somehow (from a properties file at
a well-known location?) and connect automatically if user doesn't specify such a url. If the
properties file is not present, then beeline would expect user to provide the url and credentials
using !connect or ./beeline -u .. commands

While Beeline is flexible (being a mere JDBC client), most environments would have just a
single HS2. Having users to manually connect into this via either "beeline ~/.propsfile" or
-u or !connect statements is lowering the experience part.
