    I am trying to figure out a way to load Hive tables using Pig. I have the below questions:
    1. Do I need to create a HCatalog table for PIG to be able to load data or can it load directly to a Hive table
    2. How to create a Hcatalog table with ORC storage. I checked the documentation and HDP1.3 mentions HCatalog can support future Hive storage formats like ORC but i am not able to find references from HDP 2.1

    Just create a Hive table and specify storage, then use HCatStorer to have Pig write it it.


    I have found a link which mentions that HCatalog works with ORC files but no confirmation anywhere else.
