Jarek Jarcec Cecho updated SQOOP-323:

    Attachment: SQOOP-323.patch

Hi all, 
this issue was pain in the neck for me because my task was to export several tables from Microsoft
SQL to hadoop/hive. 

I've created patch that add support for NVARCHAR and NCHAR types to sqoop. It's actually pretty
simple - I've just added translations for this type to "String". 

I've tried that on several examples and I did not find any inconsistency. However I'm not
sure that there aren't needed any text transformations to ensure that data are stored correctly.

I'm looking forward to any feedback.
