      As part of HIVE-4869, the hbase storage handler in hcat was moved to org.apache.hive.hcatalog, and then put back to org.apache.hcatalog since it was intended to be deprecated as well.

      However, it imports and uses several org.apache.hive.hcatalog classes. This needs to be changed to use org.apache.hcatalog classes.


      Note : The above is a complete description of this issue in and of by itself, the following is more details on the backward-compatibility goal I have(not saying that each of these things are violated) :

      a) People using org.apache.hcatalog packages should continue being able to use that package, and see no difference at compile time or runtime. All code here is considered deprecated, and will be gone by the time hive 0.14 rolls around. Additionally, org.apache.hcatalog should behave as if it were 0.11 for all compatibility purposes.

      b) People using org.apache.hive.hcatalog packages should never have an org.apache.hcatalog dependency injected in.


      It is okay for org.apache.hcatalog to use org.apache.hive.hcatalog packages internally (say HCatUtil, for example), as long as any interfaces only expose org.apache.hcatalog.* For tests that test org.apache.hcatalog.*, we must be capable of testing it from a pure org.apache.hcatalog.* world.

      It is never okay for org.apache.hive.hcatalog to use org.apache.hcatalog, even in tests.

      One addition/clarification:
      any application using org.apache.hcatalog.hbase.HBaseHCatStorageHandler must only use classes from org.apache.hcatalog. For example org.apache.hcatalog.mapreduce.OutputJobInfo rather than the new org.apache.hive.hcatalog.mapreduce.OutputJobInfo.
