SYMPTOM: Oozie workflow is failing with NoClassDefFoundError even though required jars are uploaded to the Oozie sharelib

ROOT CAUSE: Oozie needs to know what jars are needed for a specific action. For example, if you are using the Hive action but it needs HBase jars, this needs to explicitly defined in the oozie-site.xml


Add oozie.action.sharelib.for.hive to the oozie-site.xml and list which sharelibs that are needed for this action. In the case where Hive action will use HBase:

oozie.action.sharelib.for.hive = hive,hcatalog,hbase,oozie,hive2
