Making UDFs available in Arcadia

To enable and access UDFs from Arcadia you will need to need to use the CREATE FUNCTION syntax when adding the UDFs, and run it from the arcadia-shell :

create function my_udf location '/path/to/jar/UDF.jar' symbol='com.your.myUDF';

After this the UDFs should persist in the Hive metastore. You can also check this by running “show functions;” whether that particular UDF will persist.
