    Hi Sundar,
    It looks like an issue possibly with groovy. Have you tried posting your error there?



    Robert ,
    I tired with Python script and getting same error Caused by: CreateProcess error=193, %1 is not a valid Win32 application.



    Hi Sundar,
    What are you actually trying to do? Are you trying to capture the stream input and do some data massaging then send it over to hive to process?

    Kind Regards,


    I have stored XML as string in a hive table. I’m trying to return XML as rows using transform.

    TRANSFORM (str)
    USING ‘SampleMapper.groovy’
    AS (field1,field2)
    FROM tbhivexml;
