I split the questions into 2, actually trying to achieve one objective.
The usecase is not to export back to db. For huge tables, do one time
pull, then increment append based on modified date to a new table, merge
both so I get the updated rows. I am using left outer join efficiently, but
would like to try sqoop merge, if it is easy as to just give, input,
incremented table and be able to merge.
Also some rows would have been deleted in the database when we do the
incremental update to the hive table. I should be able to delete the rows.
The way I handle is to get all the ids(unique id) only from the database
and do another outer join, so the database deleted rows will not be in the
merged hive table.
