Hi. I am new to Talend and learning / evaluating with the Open Studio. I have a single node Hortonworks cluster (not the sandbox, actual cluster) and running Talend to try to implement a real use cases that I have. All I am trying to do is read a table from MS Sql Server and write most of the columns to a Hive ORC table. Based on my research, I found this to be a multi-step process: 1. Read the MS DB. 2. Write a text file to HDFS 3. Load the text file to a Hive text table. 4. Copy the Hive text file to an ORC table. I have set up my Talend job to do those things. After step 2, my text file contains exactly what I need. I am using a semicolon delimited file and all of my data is there. However, when I use the tHiveLoad component to load the text file into Hive, ALL of my date columns are now NULL. I researched this online and found that according to this site (), Hive won't automatically convert between Date and Timestamp. However, when I try to create my schema, the only option I have is Timestamp. I am using the DB mapping of Hive for my Schema. The Hive date type is not there (see screen shot attached). So, how do I get my dates into my Hive text table?
