-Re: How to invoke extractor during IMPORT Job Submition process- Sqoop version 1.99.1 Connector
Sqoop2 is currently under heavy development, so we do not have a "How to create connector" guide available at the moment. We will definitely have one once the interfaces will settle down.
For the time being, I'm afraid that you will need to follow existing code. If you need to call custom import extractor in your new connector, you will need to specify it in the Importer structure that is exposed by your connector. Please take a look on the Generic JDBC Connector example:
