Adding Custom Jars in Hive¶
When adding custom jars in Hive, it is strongly recommended to avoid overriding the
property in HIVE SETTINGS and HADOOP CLUSTER SETTINGS in the Hadoop 2 (Hive) cluster. Instead, you can
add jars using any of these ways:
- Use the add jar statement to add custom jars at a query level or through the Hive bootstrap.
- Add the custom jar by copying it into the
/usr/lib/hive1.2/auxlibdirectory through the cluster’s node bootstrap. Qubole recommends using this approach when you run Hive on the master node or with HiveServer2.
