Run Statement

Run the following statement to import your data:

-- Connecting EXAloader via Cloudera Hive driver to Cloudera, 
-- MapR, and Hortonworks Hadoop distributions

-- cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.13.0-0-vmware
create or replace connection hive_conn to 'jdbc:hive2://' user 
'cloudera' identified by 'cloudera';

-- MapR-Sandbox-For-Hadoop-6.1.0-vmware
create or replace connection hive_conn to 'jdbc:hive2://' user 
'mapr' identified by 'mapr';

-- Azure Hortonworks Sandbox with HDP 2.6.4
create or replace connection hive_conn to 'jdbc:hive2://' user 
'raj_ops' identified by 'raj_ops';

-- EXPORT test for Cloudera driver
export exa_syscat
    into jdbc driver = 'HiveCloudera' at hive_conn table exa_syscat created by
    'create table exa_syscat (schema_name varchar(128), object_name varchar(128),
 object_type varchar(15), object_comment varchar(2000))'

-- IMPORT test for Cloudera driver
import into(schema_name varchar(128), object_name varchar(128), object_type varchar(15), 
object_comment varchar(2000))
    from jdbc driver = 'HiveCloudera' at hive_conn table exa_syscat;

Load Data

You can use the IMPORT statement to load data using the connection you created above. IMPORT supports loading data from a table or a SQL statement.

The IMPORT statement allows you to use Kerberos connections in your connection string. For more details, see the example in connection_def.
