Subject [jira] [Created] (SQOOP-1323) Update HCatalog version to 0.13 in Sqoop builds

Venkat Ranganathan created SQOOP-1323:

             Summary: Update HCatalog version to 0.13 in Sqoop builds
                 Key: SQOOP-1323
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-1323
             Project: Sqoop
          Issue Type: Sub-task
    Affects Versions: 1.4.4
            Reporter: Venkat Ranganathan
            Assignee: Venkat Ranganathan
             Fix For: 1.4.5

We need to update the HCatalog version that we support for Sqoop builds to be 0.13.0 to support
all the Hive Datatypes with HCatalog

Since the hcatalog packages have moved from org.apache.hcatalog to org.apache.hive.hcatalog,
this will be a backward compatibility breaking change.    Hive had deprecated the packages
in 0.11 and has removed them in 0.13.1.   Also, the enhancements for hive datatype parity
is only available with the new packages.

While this would mean that we will not be able to build with older hive versions, the metastore
client is backward compatible, so newer Sqoop will still be able to access older hive (but
we have to provide the Hive 0.13 libraries to Hive on the client node)
