      Description

      This is the master JIRA for improvements to Hive that would enable it to run natively on Windows Server and Windows Azure environments. Microsoft has done the initial work here to have Hive (releases 0.7.1 and 0.8.1) running on Windows and would like to contribute this work back to the community. The end-to-end HiveQL query tests pass. We are currently working on investigating failed unit test cases. It is expected that we post the initial patches within a few weeks for review. Looking forward to the collaboration. Thanks!

          Hi Edward, thanks for the comment. We agree with you. The goal of this work is to remove the dependency of Cygwin on Windows so that Hive can run natively. This is an extension to the similar work we are doing for Hadoop (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8079). We definitely look forward to more feedback and collaborations next. Thanks!

          It is more about keeping it working then making it work. Hive has ran on cygwin+windows before. Because the Jenkins environment does not run on windows systems it can break at any time and no one will know.
