Migrate table feature

Hive supports table migration from Hive tables to Iceberg tables using ALTER TABLE to set the table properties. You set the storage_handler table property to the Iceberg storage handler.

Impala does not support table migration in this release. The topic "Test driving Iceberg from Impala" shows how to create Iceberg tables from Impala tables.

Hive example

ALTER TABLE table_name SET TBLPROPERTIES
('storage_handler'='org.apache.iceberg.mr.hive.HiveIcebergStorageHandler');
