HIVE-4545 - HS2 should return describe table results without space padding
Review Request #13383 - Created Aug. 7, 2013 and updated
HIVE-3140 changed behavior of 'DESCRIBE table;' to be like 'DESCRIBE FORMATTED table;'. HIVE-3140 introduced changes to not print header in 'DESCRIBE table;'. But jdbc/odbc calls still get fields padded with space for the 'DESCRIBE table;' query. As the jdbc/odbc results are not for direct human consumption the space padding should not be done for hive server2.
Updated TestJdbcDriver2 unit tests
