Subject RE: Executing HQL files from JAVA application.
Date Sat, 21 Mar 2015 18:15:50 GMT
Hi Mich,

Thank you for your response.  I was not aware of beeline. I have now included this in my app
and this looks a much better solution going forward.  In the last couple of hours I have tried
to work with beeline but have been facing some issues.

1.       I was able to run on the remote server command line a beeline command given below
. This was successful.
beeline -u jdbc:hive2://<server-name>:10000/test_db org.apache.hive.jdbc.HiveDriver
-n ***** -p ****** -f /hive/scripts/demoHiveTable.hql

2.       Running the same from the java app results in the issues.  My script contains a drop
table for the demoTable but the table is not dropped when running from java.   (DROP TABLE
IF EXISTS demoHiveTable;)  . I see the following logs.

SLF4J: This version of SLF4J requires log4j version 1.2.12 or later. See also
Exception in thread "Thread-1" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.hive.jdbc.HiveStatement.hasMoreLogs()Z

No rows affected (0.797 seconds)

Closing: 0: jdbc:hive2://<server-name>:10000/test_db

I tried running the following commands
String[] args = {"-d",BeeLine.BEELINE_DEFAULT_JDBC_DRIVER,"-u","jdbc:hive2://<server-name:10000/test_db",
                                 "-n","******","-p","******", "-f","C://Work//test_hive.hql"};

String[] args = {"beeline","-u","jdbc:hive2:// ://<server-name:10000/test_db",

3.       The link I referred was from googlesource (

4.       I also see that there are errors being propagated back to the application.  Is there
some configuration to get detailed logs too?

Not sure if I am missing something here.

Any pointers or assistance will be of great help.

Hi Amal,

Do you have hiveserver2 running?

You can use beeline to execute the query outside of JAVA

beeline -u jdbc:hive2://rhes564:10010/default org.apache.hive.jdbc.HiveDriver -n hduser -p
xxxx' -f ./create_index_on_t.sql

And the output shows there as well.

Subject: Executing HQL files from JAVA application.

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to execute a hive *.hql file from a java application.  I had tried a couple of
ways of doing it through JDBC driver for hive and through spring jdbc template but yet, the
only way which was successful for me was to create a runtime process and then execute it.

The java code to do that is

Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec((new String[]{"hive","-f","/hive/scripts/demoHiveTable.hql"}));

Although this works but, I wanted to know if there is better way to do it using some driver
functionality or any other api for hive. The method I used will do the execution for me, but
yet, in case of failures while executing the hql script, the same will not be visible to the
Java application.

Any pointers or suggestions will be greatly helpful. Thanks in advance.

Please let me know in case you need any other details from me.
