Feature Support

MapR does not support Hive on Spark. Therefore, you cannot use Spark as an execution engine for Hive. However, you can run Hive and Spark on the same cluster. You can also use Spark SQL and Drill to query Hive tables.


This release by MapR includes the following fixes on the base Apache release. For complete details, refer to the commit log for this project in GitHub.
