[ANNOUNCE] New Cloudera JDBC 2.6.11 Driver for Apache Hive Released

Cloudera Employee

We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera JDBC 2.6.11 driver for Apache Hive  The release has the following fixes and enhancements:


Enhancements and New Features

  • The driver now supports CDP 7.0


Resolved Issues

  •  [00222028][HIVEJ-610] Queries with a UNION clause are replaced with a UNION ALL clause.


Known Issues 

The following are known issues that you may encounter due to limitations in the data source, the driver, or an application. 

  •  [HIVEJ-577] The JDBC 4.0 version of the driver fails to connect to servers that require encryption using TLS 1.1 or later.  When you attempt to connect to the server, the connection fails and the driver returns an SSL handshake exception. This issue occurs only when you run the driver using Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0.  As a workaround, run the driver using JRE 7.0 or 8.0.


Workflow Changes

See the Release Notes for the full list of upcoming workflow changes that may disrupt the established workflow of the drivers.
