Firstly you need to put the JDBC driver of impala into the plugin directory of Neo4j, and restart it.

Then, register the driver in neo4j with this query :
CALL apoc.load.driver("com.cloudera.impala.jdbc41.Driver");

And now you can use the apoc JDNC procedure like that :
CALL apoc.load.jdbc("jdbc:impala://MY_SERVER_IP:PORT/MY_DB","SELECT * FROM table" YIELD row ...

Can you download this version of the driver instead : https://www.cloudera.com/downloads/connectors/impala/jdbc/2-5-45.html

Is this because of impala driver ??
Do we need more jars for this like thrift,metastore, hive service ,http client etc ??

Yes it seems that the JDBC jar requires some additionals libraries ... byt I have found any trace of that in the cloudera documentation ....

But the version 2.5.45 includes a lot of jars ... that's why I have asked you to try it.
