Re: Hive Unit Tests: Read-Only Table
As mentioned we normally do not touch the QTestUtil.java and instead
do all the work in q files. The only thing I can thing of is that the
table name is bad or that you are overwriting and already existing

It is hard to tell without any code.

I'm fairly certain it is loading from the correct filepath.  When I try to run it though, I get the error "Cannot overwrite read-only table." Does anybody have a solution for this?
