Hunk 6.3.0 doesn’t seem to work with Hive (version 0.13) with Char(N) definitions

We realized recently that our Hunk 6.3.0 doesn’t seem to work with Hive (version 0.13) with Char(N) definitions.

Based on this link: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+Types
Char is only supported in version 0.13 and after
String is supported in earlier versions

As you can see from this link Hunk support Hive version 0.12 or before: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Hunk/6.3.2/Hunk/ConfigureHivepreprocessor

The workaround - modify the Hunk property "vix.env.HUNK_THIRDPARTY_JARS" in your virtual index provider page by pointing all hive related jars to the ones defined in your HIVE_HOME/lib:

  • replace the .jar files under $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/jars/thirdparty/hive with that of yours. For example, these are my MapR hive .jar file I will be using:

hive-exec-0.13.0-mapr-1504.jar
hive-metastore-0.13.0-mapr-1504.jar
hive-serde-0.13.0-mapr-1504.jar

  • update the vix.env.HUNK_THIRDPARTY_JARS parameter values to reflect the new .jar files so Hunk can use them:

    $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/jars/thirdparty/hive/hive-exec-0.13.0-mapr-1504.jar,$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/jars/thirdparty/hive/hive-metastore-0.13.0-mapr-1504.jar,$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/jars/thirdparty/hive/hive-serde-0.13.0-mapr-1504.jar
