Hive MD5 UDF

import org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.UDF;
* Calculate md5 of the string
public final class Md5 extends UDF {
public Text evaluate(final Text s) {
if (s == null) {
return null;
try {
MessageDigest md = MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5");
byte[] md5hash = md.digest();
StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();
for (byte b : md5hash) {
builder.append(Integer.toString((b & 0xff) + 0x100, 16).substring(1));
return new Text(builder.toString());
} catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException nsae) {
System.out.println("Cannot find digest algorithm");
return null;
