Re: Quering RDBMS table in a Hive query
Hi Ruslan,

I've been in similar situation and solved it by writing a custom
InputFormat and LineReader that loads the data from MySQL in
constructor. In my case I use it just to check value ranges and
similar stuff. If you want to join the data with whats in your hdfs
files, you can do that as well, InputFormat allows you to add the
columns easily. I'm not sure how well this solution would behave for a
bigger data, but for small data (I load about 5 tables, ~100 lines
each) it works just fine.

Best Regards,
