Hue 3.5.0 does not work with Hive-0.13. fetchResults() should not be called on hiveserver2 for ddl commands.
fetchResults() should only be called for queries such as select *
'create table' is a DDL command, not a query.
When hue-3.5 metastore manager tries to create a database from metastore manager (page screenshot provided), hue hits the null pointer exception in thrift response because hiveserver2 schema returned from fetchResults() is null.
hue should decide what api calls to make depending upon the type of the command (ddl vs. query)
Please check the call stack attached.
