You will need to install both Hadoop and Hive to run the examples in this book. The scripts in this book were written and tested with Cloudera Distributed Hadoop (CDH) v5.3 (contains Hive v0.13.x and Hadoop v2.5.0), Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) v2.2 (contains Hive v0.14.0 and Hadoop v2.6.0), and Apache Hive 1.0.0 (with Hadoop 1.2.1) in pseudo-distributed mode. However, the majority of the scripts will also run on the previous versions of Hadoop and Hive. The following are the other software applications you may need for a better understanding of the Hive-related tools mentioned in the book. These tools are also available in the CDH or HDP packages.
