Subject [jira] [Updated] (SQOOP-492) Implement a documentation system for Sqoop2
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2012 05:47:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-492?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Kathleen Ting updated SQOOP-492:
--------------------------------

    Description: 
Sqoop2 Design Goals

- Ease of use
The current version of Sqoop provides a large set of command line options which are not intuitive
or easy to understand. Some options are overloaded in different contexts while others do not
apply in certain contexts. Understanding of these options is contingent upon the user’s
understanding of different systems that Sqoop works with.

- Ease of Extension
Sqoop connectors are the main extension points for Sqoop. The implementation of individual
connector impacts the overall functionality of Sqoop in the context of the connector.

- Security and Separation of Concerns
The operation of Sqoop in its current form is command line based where the user is expected
to provide complete details relating to the job including connection parameters that are often
sensitive and require controlled access.
