Subject [jira] [Created] (SQOOP-423) Sqoop import of timestamps to Avro from Postgres - Timezone Issue

Sqoop import of timestamps to Avro from Postgres - Timezone Issue

                 Key: SQOOP-423
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-423
             Project: Sqoop
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.3.0
            Reporter: Lynn Goh

I am running sqoop-1.3.0-cdh3u2 on a Mac and when I sqoop import from a postgres table with
columns of type 'timestamp without time zone', they are converted to longs in the time zone
of my local operating system, even after I have started Hadoop up with TZ=GMT or passed in
HADOOP_OPTS="-Duser.timezone=GMT".  My ultimate goal is to sqoop import into long representations
that are in GMT timezone rather than my operating system's timezone.

Postgres example:
acamp_id |     start_time      |      end_time       
       1 | 2008-01-01 00:00:00 | 2011-12-16 00:00:00

After import, you can see the values are 8 hours ahead, even with TZ=GMT and user.timezone
set properly (this is the json representation of the parsed imported avro file):
{"acamp_id": 1, "end_time": 1324022400000, "start_time": 1199174400000}

date utility invocation:
lynngoh@unknown:~$ date -u -r 1199174400
Tue Jan  1 08:00:00 UTC 2008
