Hive 2.3 API Changes

This topic describes the public API changes that occurred between Hive 2.1 MEP 5.0.0 and Hive 2.3 MEP 6.0.0.

For more information, see the Hive 2.1.1-1803 (MEP 4.1.1 and MEP 5.0.0) Release Notes and Hive 2.3.3-1808 (MEP 6.0.0) Release Notes.

JDBC classes API changes

This section contains changes made to classes related to the JDBC API in Hive.

Table 1. Class org.apache.hive.jdbc.HiveConnection
Method Description
List<String> parseInitFile(String initFile) Parses initial SQL file skipping comments that starts with # or --.
Table 2. Class org.apache.hive.jdbc.HiveStatement
Method Description
void setInPlaceUpdateStream(InPlaceUpdate stream) Only used by the beeline client to set the stream on which in place progress updates are to be shown.
Table 3. Class org.apache.hive.jdbc.Utils
Method Description
JdbcConnectionParams parseURL(String uri) Parse JDBC connection URL The new format of the URL is:
where the optional sess, conf, and var lists are semicolon separated = pairs. For utilizing dynamic service discovery with HiveServer2, multiple comma-separated host:port pairs can be specified as shown above. The JDBC driver resolves the list of URIs and picks a specific server instance to connect to. Currently, dynamic service discovery using ZooKeeper is supported, in which case the host:port pairs represent a ZooKeeper ensemble. As before, if the host/port is not specified, it the driver runs an embedded Hive:
  • jdbc:hive2://ubuntu:11000/db2?hive.cli.conf.printheader=true; #stab=salesTable;icol=customerID
  • jdbc:hive2://?hive.cli.conf.printheader=true; #stab=salesTable;icol=customerID
  • jdbc:hive2://ubuntu:11000/db2;user=foo;password=bar
Connect to http://server:10001/hs2, with specified basicAuth credentials and initial database:

Security-related API changes

The following properties are removed from the default hive-site.xml configuration on a secured cluster:

Table 4. Properties removed from default hive-site.xml
Property Value
hive.server2.webui.keystore.path /opt/mapr/conf/ssl_keystore.
hive.server2.webui.keystore.password Default keystore password.

The following property is added to the default hive-site.xml configuration on a secured cluster:

Table 5. Properties added to default hive-site.xml
Method Description
hive.server2.use.SSL true true

Since the HiveServer2 server is configured to use SSL encryption by default starting from Hive-2.3 MEP-6.0.0, add ssl=true; to a JDBC connection string when PAM or MAPR-SASL authentication is used.

For example:

Old JDBC connection string with PAM authentication:
beeline> !connect jdbc:hive2://<host>:10000/default;
New JDBC connection string with PAM authentication:
beeline> !connect jdbc:hive2://<host>:10000/default;ssl=true;
Note: All API functionality changes are compatible with previous versions.
