Considerations for using Iceberg with Hive - Amazon EMR
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Considerations for using Iceberg with Hive

  • Iceberg supports the following query types:

    • Create table

    • Drop table

    • Insert into table

    • Read table

  • Only the MR (MapReduce) execution engine is supported for DML (data manipulation language) operations, and MR is deprecated in Hive 3.1.3.

  • Amazon Glue Data Catalog is not currently supported for Iceberg with Hive.

  • Error handling is insufficiently robust. In cases of misconfiguration, inserts into queries might complete successfully. However, failure to update metadata can result in data loss.
