> There's this block of code in {{HiveMetaStoreClient:resolveUris}} (called 
> from the constructor) on master:
> {noformat}
>   private URI metastoreUris[];
>   ...
>       if (MetastoreConf.getVar(conf, 
> ConfVars.THRIFT_URI_SELECTION).equalsIgnoreCase("RANDOM")) {
>         List uriList = Arrays.asList(metastoreUris);
>         Collections.shuffle(uriList);
>         metastoreUris = (URI[]) uriList.toArray();
>       }
> {noformat}
> The cast to {{URI[]}} throws a {{ClassCastException}} beginning with JDK 10, 
> possibly with JDK 9 as well. Note that {{THRIFT_URI_SELECTION}} defaults to 
> {{RANDOM}} so this should affect anyone who creates a 
> {{HiveMetaStoreClient}}. On master this can be overridden with {{SEQUENTIAL}} 
> to avoid the broken case; I'm working against 2.3.4 where there's no such 
> workaround.

>  a StackOverflow post that explains the issue in more detail. Interestingly, 
> the author described the issue in the context of the HMS; not sure why there 
> was no follow up with a Hive bug report.
