Subject Re: Hive query on existing HBase table
Date Sun, 08 Apr 2012 09:56:29 GMT
Hi Vishal and Ashutosh

        Using hive hbase storage handler it is possible to query an existing table
in hbase using hive, and you can load data into hbase as well. And the feature is available
in hive since hive 0.6 .

Oh ok, thanks Ashutosh

Is there a new API introduced for this or works for External Table?
