Subject [jira] [Created] (SQOOP-883) Remove input directory prior Sqoop import
Date Sun, 10 Feb 2013 21:01:12 GMT
Jarek Jarcec Cecho created SQOOP-883:

             Summary: Remove input directory prior Sqoop import
                 Key: SQOOP-883
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-883
             Project: Sqoop
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.4.2
            Reporter: Jarek Jarcec Cecho
            Priority: Minor

Sqoop will fail if target directory already exists on HDFS. This can for example happen after
previously failed Sqoop import or in cases when users are re-importing the tables on regular

Right now user is forced to remove the input directory manually prior re-executing Sqoop.
I think that it might be useful to add a new argument that would nuke the target directory
if it exists automatically.

I believe that this feature will be safe to use as it will be turned off by default. User
will have to explicitly specify extra command line argument in order to remove any data.
