             Summary: The OracleConnect getTables() implementation needs to restrict tables
to current user
                 Key: SQOOP-741
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-741
             Project: Sqoop
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.4.2
         Environment: Oracle 11g 
            Reporter: Venkat Ranganathan


SQOOP has various managers specific to each Database.   Each of these managers provide database
specific queries to list databases, tables, table columns, etc.  The Oracle implementation
(org.apache.sqoop.manager.OracleManager) defines queries specific for Oracle.  The query for
list tables in this implementation provides a list of all the tables the user has access to.

This is inconsistent with the other queries defined (for getting list of table columns, get
primary key for table etc) which restrict the table being queried to be owned by the user.

This inconsisent behavior has more issues.   For example, when we do import-all-tables (subject
to other restrictions of import-all-tables), it fails because the list tables query used by
import all tables returns tables like DUAL (which is a dummy Oracle table that gets blessed
into all user schemas for historical reasons and other tables).

I can provide a patch for this if there is agreement that this behavior needs fixing (and
it will make Oracle manager work like other database connectors at least in spirit)
