A Hive connection functions the same as a JDBC connection. It supplies the JDBC driver and metadata information which are the same as JDBC. However, it expands many native functions to support non SQL and huge data that are not supported by JDBC.
To set up Hive connections in Logi JReport Designer, you need to add the corresponding Hive database drivers to
<designer_install_root>\lib, or append the archive files of the drivers to the ADDCLASSPATH variable in the file setenv.bat in
<designer_install_root>\bin. The libraries that support Hive 0.12.0 are listed as below. If you use higher Hive versions, you can replace them with new jars.
