Some additions to the hive jdbc driver.
I've been using the hive jdbc driver more and more and was missing some
functionality which I added

Using "show tables" to get the info from hive.

Using "describe tablename" to get the columns.

This makes using something like SQuirreL a lot nicer since you have the
list of tables and just click on the content tab to see what's in the table.
I also implemented
HiveResultSet.getObject(String columnName) so you call most get* methods
based on the column name.

Is it worth making a patch for this?
