Hive Mapping Example

Hive Mapping Example

Your organization, HypoMarket Corporation, needs to analyze customer data. Create a mapping that reads all the customer records. Create an SQL data service to make a virtual database available for end users to query.
You can use the following objects in a Hive mapping:
Hive input
The input file is a Hive table that contains the customer names and contact details.
Create a relational data object. Configure the Hive connection and specify the table that contains the customer data as a resource for the data object. Drag the data object into a mapping as a read data object.
SQL Data Service output
Create an SQL data service in the Developer tool. To make it available to end users, include it in an application, and deploy the application to a Data Integration Service. When the application is running, connect to the SQL data service from a third-party client tool by supplying a connect string.
You can run SQL queries through the client tool to access the customer data.
