Sorry Abe that was a bit confusing on my part.
However, I solved what I was looking to do using a free form import w/ concat of the two fields comprising the composite PK.
Appreciate the help!

Subject: Re: Composite Key
I'm not sure I understand what you're asking... are you asking if you can split by composite key? I don't think that's currently possible. Splitting occurs on a single column. Are you asking if data can make its way into HDFS (or Hive) via the composite key? You might have to use free-form queries. You should be able to use an oracle function to concat the two columns together. See http://sqoop.apache.org/docs/1.4.4/SqoopUserGuide.html#_free_form_query_imports for more details on that. You should be able to use to_char (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14200/functions181.htm) and concat (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14200/functions026.htm) functions.

I'm doing an import/export with an Oracle table that has a composite key as the PK (so PRIMARY KEY(col1,col2))
I dug through the Sqoop documentation and I see that I can set a composite key for HBase imports (--hbase-row-key) but I'm wondering how/if I can use the composite key from my source Oracle table without HBase?
Hope that makes sense...
