This topic introduces Hive connections and lists the libraries you need to provide when using Hive connections in Designer.
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 JDBC does not support.
To set up Hive connections in 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 of setenv.bat in
<designer_install_root>\bin. The following lists the libraries that support Hive 0.12.0. When you use later Hive versions, you can replace them with new jars.
