Mapreduce error by a Hive - Webhcat job

New Contributor

hello community, my version is cdh5.11.1,  I'm trying to execute a Hive query by webhcat for a REST service,



curl -s -d execute="select+*+from+sample_08;" -d 



but the mapreduce produces the following error:

I see that it is a library error, but I can not find a way to fix i.


Sorry for my bad english,Thanks for the help


LogUtils should be in the hive-common.jar or hive-common-1.1.0-cdh5.11.1.jar file, is the jar file in the class path?

I am wondering why you are not using beeline to run the query, but rather use webhcat?

Thanks for responding, I use the webhcat because I need the result of the query to be a json or xml file for a REST service. without using jdbc.


Webhcat was the first alternative I found.


I already solved the problem of the jar, now i have another problem, when executing the command curl the MapReduce does not find the file "hive-0.11.0.targ.gz"

Change the path in the configuration file "webhcat-default.xml", but only the node where I execute the command grabs the configuration change, the other nodes even if I change their local file "webhcat-default.xml" they remain with the old configuration.

Hi Rakios, How did you solve the java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/hadoop/hive/common/LogUtils error ?

I have created the hive.tar.gz and have made the below changes to webhcat-site.xml but i still get the above error which is  java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/hadoop/hive/common/LogUtils. Also, the hive.tar.gz contains the hive-common jar. 




Any help from Cloudera would also be appreciated.

 I was able to solve this problem. Anybody looking for help can get in touch with me. Too bad, nobody from Cloudera responded to this in more than 2 weeks.
