Subject Using Hive metastore as general purpose RDBMS
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2014 10:02:46 GMT

I have a case where I would like to extend Hive to use information from a
regular RDBMS. To limit the complexity of the installation I thought I
could piggyback on the already existing metatstore.

As I understand it, HCatalog is not built for this purpose. Is there
someone out there that has a similar usecase or have any input on how this
is done or if it should be avoided?

The use case is to look up which partitions that contain certain data.
