This JIRA keeps track of the effort of FLINK-10556 on Hive metastore integration. It mainly covers two aspects:
- Register Hive metastore as an external catalog of Flink, such that Hive table metadata can be accessed directly.
- Store Flink metadata (tables, views, UDFs, etc) in a catalog that utilizes Hive as the schema registry.
Discussions and resulting design doc will be shared here, but detailed work items will be tracked by sub-tasks.
