What is the preferred method to initiate a sqoop job from php? I've been reading up on thrift and it seems like it might be the way to do this but I really haven't seen much in the way of real world examples using thrift and php. Is this what thrift is suited for?

With Sqoop 1.x, the best seems to be calling the command line utility directly. In Sqoop 2.x, there will be an HTTP like interface that should be language agnostic.
