Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-382) Connection parameters should be used on the mapper
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2012 02:31:00 GMT

David Robson commented on SQOOP-382:
------------------------------------

I actually looked into this a fair bit when I raised it - I think the easiest way is to just
make it a Configuration parameter - then you can use the standard Hadoop Configuration object
to get the array of connection parameters.
Part of the problem with this for Sqoop 1.x is each connector has to implement it - so while
it can be fixed in Sqoop - it won't work in say the Microsoft connector or the Quest one.
Of course if it's fixed I can fix the Quest connector...
Let me know if this feature is desirable - seeing as I'd have to fix OraOop anyway I could
fix it in Sqoop at the same time and submit a patch.

> Currently you can specify connection parameters using --connection-param-file <properties-file>.
> This applies the connection parameters to the connection when generating the Sqoop code
- but the parameters are not passed down to the mapper.
> Instead of specifying a parameters file couldn't we have a comma seperated list that
could be specified on the command line or in sqoop-site.xml - that way it would be easier
to override the settings per job, and they would be passed down to the mappers. It would then
be simple to modify DBConfiguration.getConnection to read these.
