-Sqoop 2 and batch mode
Babu, Prashanth 2013-09-11, 06:25
I am trying to migrate to Sqoop 2 running on Hadoop v2.1.0-beta from Sqoop 1.x running on Hadoop v1.x.
I found that few of the commands in Sqoop 2 are possible only in interactive mode.
For example: http://sqoop.apache.org/docs/1.99.2/CommandLineClient.html#create-command
Creates new connection and job objects. This command is supported only in interactive mode. It will query user for all parameters that are required by specific connector and framework and persist them in Sqoop server for later use.
Is there any way to get the batch mode commands to run like how it was possible in Sqoop 1.x either thru code or any other way?
For example, this particular Sqoop command ran perfectly in Sqoop v1.x.
sqoop import --connect jdbc:mysql://myhost/mydb --username db_user --password **** --table tname --hbase-table hbase_tname --column-family cfam --hbase-create-table -m 1
Also, I could not find documentation on how to push data into HBase directly. I always get only one option i.e. HDFS by importing. Am I missing something here?
Please let me know if reverting to sqoop-1.4.4.bin__hadoop-2.0.4-alpha.tar.gz is the only solution for this.
Also just in case if it's useful, my environment is Hadoop v2.1.0-beta and HBase compiled from the source to make it compatible with Hadoop v2.1.0 beta.
