I have Talend 5.3.1 installed on my machine (OS is Windows 7 Pro, 8 GB RAM). Version: 5.3.1 Build id: r104014 In the Hive components section on the Palette, there are three components listed: tHiveClose tHiveConnection tHiveRow There is a tHiveInput component which I have seen in different locations in the internet. Ex: http://www.talendforge.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=29963 http://prashantguptaimpetus.blogspot.com/2013/04/talend-open-studio-integration-with.html However, it is not appearing for me. I am still able to query Hadoop using tHiveRow, but I believe that tHiveInput is more convenient to use (no need to parse the tHiveRow result set). Where can I download tHiveInput component? And why would it be missing from my Palette, even though it is supposed to be available in 5.3.1? Also, can join queries be executed in tHiveInput?
