I have a customer wondering what can they use as Hive GUI (but not based on web technology, so not Ambari view or Hue)
I was thinking of / found http://squirrel-sql.sourceforge.net/ and https://www.toadworld.com/products/toad-for-hadoop and probably eclipse with JDBC ? Any feedback is welcome.
Thanks and kind regards.
I confirm that DbVisualizer works fine with HiveServer2. We use it quite a lot in one big ETL-Hive project we have.
Take care, the free version has some limitations (for instance, you can't have 2 same tabs opened at the same time) and depending on the usage you have of that tool, you might want the comercial version.
+1. I miss the 'run selected' option in free version. Still a great tool though and also works with kerberos environment or when Knox is being used.
you can also use Microsoft Visual Studio https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/updated-visual-studio-tools-for-apache-hive/ and Oracle SQL Developer http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sql-developer/overview/index-097090.html and
I am trying to connect using dbvisualizer it always throws error message saying illegal hadoop version my hdp is 2.6.x and hive is 0.14 , i have all the jar files coming from my unix installation box.
I like to use SQL Workbench/J. We use this tool for querying Amazon Redshift and Phoenix also. It's free and I haven't had any problems with it. I tried SQuirreL, but it was finicky and didn't like it much. Haven't tried DBVisualizer.
