I have a table in hive:
table1
f1  f2
x   10
y 20
p 40
q 55

How can I query the above table in hive to obtain one record like the following:
x:10, y:20, p:40, q:55

Thank you.

Are you talking about the Windows registry hive or some other database?

What language are you using?

In looking at the Hive language manual it uses fairly standard SQL

SELECT * FROM sales WHERE amount > 10 AND region = "US"

Link to the language manual

My guess would be some combination of ClusterBy and Transform, however, I have no way to test this.

You need COLLECT_SET function. try this.
SELECT COLLECT_SET(Col) AS Res_Col
  FROM (SELECT CONCAT(f1,':',f2) AS Col
		  FROM table1) T1
