Read schema in metastore hive

Hi all,


I have tables in the landing area in textFile format with snappy compression, This information want to read without using Hive methods (register temporal table, read table etc) that´s why I want to read hdfs path and create dataframe with a structType for example.


The cuestion is, How to read schema in the Hive Metastore without read data. I look in the scaladoc (hiveContext) for a method that read schema table but I didn`t find it.


Best Regards.


Un saludo.
