Hi Brian,

Just one thing to note - Sqoop 1.99.3 doesn't have the direct connector as yet - so if you are going to transfer large amounts of data you may want to try 1.4.5 out with the "-direct" option. If it's just small tables then you should be OK with 1.99.3.

Here is a presentation we did at Hadoop World explaining the differences between the direct connector and the generic approach - http://www.slideshare.net/gharriso/from-oracle-to-hadoop-with-sqoop-and-other-tools

Thanks all.

I followed up with one more blog entry:
(which shows how to get Oracle->HDFS up and running)

I found one more error in the documentation.
(RE: http://sqoop.apache.org/docs/1.99.3/Sqoop5MinutesDemo.html)
The documentation uses the "submission" syntax for submitting the job.
It appears as though 1.99.3 wants the "start" syntax.  We should update the getting started guide.

Sqoop worked on the first job submission!
Nice work everyone.

thanks again,
