    HI guys,
    I tried to create map/reduce program to practice Hcatalog, I followed the guidence on Site.
    The Map/Reduce program just read data from HCatalog table and wirte to another one. But the simple program always raise error on following code snipt
    HCatInputFormat.setInput(job, InputJobInfo.create(DbName,InputTbName,null));

    Here is the dtailed Error Message:

    I have already package hive-exec.jar into my map/Reduce program.

    hadoop jar d:\hcat\HCatInterface.jar hcatalog.HCatInterfacePOC student studentg
    BTW, What i am using is HDP for windows.

    Hi Andy,

    It is most likely because it can’t find some Hive jars. You may want to try to add the Hive jars into the CLASSPATH.
