Some of the DDL functionality has been added over the course of the beta releases, including substantial new features within the last month. You might have read some restrictions that no longer apply.
For the statements that Impala 1.0 supports, including CREATE/DROP DATABASE and CREATE/ALTER/DROP TABLE, see:http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/Impala/latest/Installing-and-Using-Impala/ciiu_langref_sql.html
Certain restrictions do still apply depending upon the file format of the table. For example, you would still use Hive to create an Avro table. For the types of operations that Impala can do for each file format, see:http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera-content/cloudera-docs/Impala/latest/Installing-and-Using-Impala/ciiu_file_formats.html

I am new to impala, I have read that impala does not support create,alter and drop queries..
Is it so? If that is a case, Can we need to create, alter and drop table through hive?
Can any one please explain me this thing
