Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-12339) WebHCat should have an option to return a result instead of jobId
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2015 23:37:11 GMT


Sushanth Sowmyan commented on HIVE-12339:

Hi, I believe this limitation was by design. WebHCat was designed to be a job-submitter that
could sit on a gateway that users can access, but not expose any direct underlying data directly,
and instead defer to WebHDFS to manage that. This decision also gets around the question of
how to handle returns of things like selects when the returns are truly large. For most part,
hive query returns are expected to be large.

Whether or not we want to re-evaluate that is up to community decision.

For most of the usecases associated with remote-running of queries and fetching results, HS2
via jdbc is the recommended way of using hive.

> this currently returns jobid in JSON format, it would be nice to get the actual result
as part of JSON.
