This is the second of two posts examining the use of Hive for interaction with HBase tables. This is a hands-on exploration so the first post isn’t required reading for consuming this one. Still, it might be good context.
“Nick!” you exclaim, “that first post had too many words and I don’t care about JIRA tickets. Show me how I use this thing!”
This is post is exactly that: a concrete, end-to-end example of consuming HBase over Hive. The whole mess was tested to work on a tiny little 5-node cluster running HDP-1.3.2, which means Hive 0.11.0 and HBase 0.94.6.1.
