[ANNOUNCE] New Hive JDBC Driver Released

[ANNOUNCE] New Hive JDBC Driver Released

Cloudera Employee

We are pleased to announce the release of Hive JDBC v2.5.20. The release has the following fixes and enhancements:


Enhancements and New Features in Hive JDBC 2.5.20

  • The driver now supports Apache Hive versions 0.11 through 2.1.
  • The driver now supports SubjectAlternativeNames host name matching for SSL certificates.
  • Authentication using Hadoop Delegation Tokens is now supported.


Resolved Issues in Hive JDBC 2.5.20

  • When next() is called for a second time on ResultSet that does not have any more rows, an incorrect exception is thrown. This issue has been resolved. The driver now returns False.
  • AllowSelfignedCerts does not disable SSL. The issue has been resolved. Now, when AllowSelfSignedCerts property is set to 1, SSL verification is disabled. The driver does not verify the server certificate against the trust store, and does not verify if the server’s host name matches the CN or Subject Alternative Names in the server certificate.  This behavior is consistent with Cloudera JDBC Driver for Apache Hive 2.5.18 and earlier.


For a full list of enhancements, new features, and resolved issues, please see the Release Notes below.
