Re: Sqoop - utf-8 data load issue
Hi Jarcec,

I am validating the data by running the following command,

hadoop fs -text <hdfs cluster>

I think there is no issue with the shell (correct me if am wrong) because I am connecting to MySQL database from the same shell(command line) and  could view the source data properly.

Initially we observed that the following conf files doesn't have utf-8 encoding. 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


But no luck after making the changes too.

Hi Varun,
we are usually not seeing any issues with transferring text data in UTF. How are
you validating the imported file? I can imagine that your shell might be messing
the encoding.
