Subject Re: Hive 0.12 support in 1.4.0 ?
Date Mon, 22 Jun 2015 18:03:16 GMT
Hi Tom,

In Spark 1.4, we have de-coupled the support of Hive's metastore and other
parts (parser, Hive udfs, and Hive SerDes). The execution engine of Spark
SQL in 1.4 will always use Hive 0.13.1. For the metastore connection part,
you can connect to either Hive 0.12 or 0.13.1's metastore. We have removed
old shims and profiles of specifying the Hive version (since execution
engine is always using Hive 0.13.1 and metastore client part can be
configured to use either Hive 0.12 or 0.13.1's metastore).

You can take a look at
for connecting to Hive 0.12's metastore.

Let me know if you have any question.
