This library needs to be upgraded. We use a couple of classes `JDateTime`(https://github.infra.cloudera.com/CDH/hive/blob/cdpd-master/ql/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/hive/ql/io/parquet/timestamp/NanoTimeUtils.java ) and `HtmlEncoder`, which have either been deprecated and/or have been moved to a different package called jodd-util.
