###Cloudera Impala JDBC Example
This example shows how to build and run a maven-based project that executes SQL queries on Cloudera Impala using JDBC and then populates a Neo4J database based on the results of the query. Cloudera Impala is a native Massive Parallel Processing (MPP) query engine which enables users to perform interactive analysis of data stored in HBase or HDFS.
Here are links to more information on Cloudera Impala:
Neo4J is the world's leading graph database.

To use the Cloudera Impala JDBC driver in your own maven-based project you can copy the
<repository> elements from this project's pom to your own instead of manually downloading the JDBC driver jars.
####Dependencies To build the project you must have Maven 2.x or higher installed. Maven info is here.
To run the project you must have access to a Hadoop cluster running Cloudera Impala with at least one populated table defined in the Hive Metastore. Neo4J must also be installed. You can download [Neo4J] from (http://www.neo4j.org/download).
####Configure the example To configure the example you must:
- Select or create the table(s) to query against.
- Set the query and impalad host in the example source file
These steps are described in more detail below.
#####Select or create the table(s) to run the example with For this example I created my own table and populated it.
#####Set the query and impalad host Edit these two setting in the ImpalaNeo4JImporter.java source file:
- Set the SQL Statement
private static final String SQL_STATEMENT = "SELECT * from organizations limit 10";
- Set the host for the impalad you want to connect to:
private static final String IMPALAD_HOST = "MyImpaladHost";
####Building the project To build the project, run the command:
mvn clean compile
from the root of the project directory. There is a build.sh script for your convenience.
