Does QlikView natively support connecting to Hadoop based systems ? I tried to connect to CDH 4.1 using the Cloudera connector for QlikView (which is available on Cloudera website) but I am not able to connect.
I know there are other ways like using JDBC connector but I would like to know if QlikView can connect to Hadoop/Hive sources without purchasing any third party connectors.
The example demonstrates the connectivity using JDBC driver which has to be purchased from tiq-solutions. I am looking some thing which is directly available from QlikView.
Nope. It doesn't connect directly! It's also a custom connector and needs an additional software stack.
The Cloudera ODBC driver is one direct connectivity solution (as JDBC connector is too) but doesn't work with the latest CDH!
