Re: What does Hive and Impala ODBC "C6 Compatible" mean?

"C6" is CDH version 6?

 

Each ODBC document (pdf) states that the driver supports 5.x.

Is 6.x also supported?
Or is it not supported but at a level that works for compatibility?

 

I refer below:

 * Hive ODBC doc

  * 2.5.25 : https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/other/connectors/hive-odbc/2-5-25/Cloudera-ODBC-Driver-for-Ap...

   * The Cloudera ODBC Driver for Apache Hive supports Apache Hive versions 0.11 through 2.1, and CDH versions 5.0 through 5.13. The driver also supports later minor versions of CDH 5.

 

 * Impala ODBC doc

  * 2.5.42 : https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/other/connectors/impala-odbc/2-5-42/Cloudera-ODBC-Driver-for-...

   * The Cloudera ODBC Driver for Impala is recommended for Impala versions 1.0.1 through 2.10, and CDH versions 5.0 through 5.13. The driver also supports later minor versions of CDH 5.

Re: What does Hive and Impala ODBC "C6 Compatible" mean?

From the following page, I was informed that "C6 Compatible" is gone.
 * https://www.cloudera.com/downloads/connectors/hive/odbc/2-6-1.html
 * https://www.cloudera.com/downloads/connectors/impala/odbc/2-6-2.html

In Japan time, there was a description in 4/11, but it was that it was deleted in 4/12.

Thank you for the correction.
Unaware "C6 Compatible", use the latest version of ODBC.
