Bug Fixes in Build

Severity Reference Description Existed Since Version Resolution
Major WPD-574 All Hive queries time out after 120 seconds. This is caused by the Query timeout option in Workbench not being honored. 4.5 Fixed. Workbench was modified to honor the Query timeout.
Major WPD-563 Import into Workbench for Hive fails if a user chooses the INTEGER data type for the import. This issue is caused by Workbench supporting INTEGER, not the Hive-supported INT. 4.5 Fixed. INTEGER was replaced with INT.
Moderate WPD-548 When connected to the Hadoop cluster through Hive, a user tries to open Job Tracker Configuration and Task Tracker Configuration from the Server node in the Object Browser but gets an error. 4.5 Fixed.
