Hey Venkat, Devs,
My use case for json output is that the environment I work in is standardizing on keeping all data sources as json. Adding an extra pig script or something similar to convert all sqoop output to json is just extra work that, in my opinion, should simply be handled by sqoop. Sqoop seems especially suited for this since it is already aware of column names and data types which is making the creation of solid json seriously straightforward.
Let me know if there's any other questions :)
