Prerequisites for BDD Hive database name used by BDD:-

You will be prompted for the BDD Hive database name. Enter the name "default". It is possible to use a different database, but it is recommended that you start with the name "default" for a first time installation. If "default" is not used, and the backing Hive database is not set up correctly, the install will fail.

After the installation, how can the configuration be changed to use a different Hive database (that is, not the "default" database)?

For example:
Perhaps there are other products that already use the "default" database and it is desirable to segregate the data uploaded by users via BDD into its own / separate database.
