Subject Using Hive Thrift SerDe
Date Tue, 28 Jun 2011 06:09:46 GMT

I can't seem to make Hive find the Thrift SerDe. What do I need to do?

hive> add jar /usr/lib/hive/lib/hive-serde-0.7.0-cdh3u0.jar;                  
Added /usr/lib/hive/lib/hive-serde-0.7.0-cdh3u0.jar to class path
Added resource: /usr/lib/hive/lib/hive-serde-0.7.0-cdh3u0.jar
hive> CREATE external TABLE scratch.sk_logs (user_id bigint, request_type int)      
    >    ROW FORMAT SERDE "org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.thrift.ThriftByteStreamTypedSerDe"
LOCATION '/user/ayon/hiveserdetest' ;
FAILED: Error in metadata: Cannot validate serde: org.apache.hadoop.hive.serde2.thrift.ThriftByteStreamTypedSerDe
FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask
