Subject Some additions to the hive jdbc driver.
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2010 08:31:05 GMT
I've been using the hive jdbc driver more and more and was missing some 
functionality which I added

Using "show tables" to get the info from hive.

Using "describe tablename" to get the columns.

This makes using something like SQuirreL a lot nicer since you have the 
list of tables and just click on the content tab to see what's in the table.

I also implemented
HiveResultSet.getObject(String columnName) so you call most get* methods 
based on the column name.

Is it worth making a patch for this?
