To reduce the cost of migrating Hive to Flink, we introduce HiveServer2 Endpoint and Hive Syntax Improvements in this version:
The HiveServer2 Endpoint allows users to interact with SQL Gateway with Hive JDBC/Beeline and migrate with Flink into the Hive ecosystem (DBeaver, Apache Superset, Apache DolphinScheduler, and Apache Zeppelin). When users connect to the HiveServer2 endpoint, the SQL Gateway registers the Hive Catalog, switches to Hive Dialect, and uses batch execution mode to execute jobs. With these steps, users can have the same experience as HiveServer2.
Read on for a pretty large hit list.
