Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-1272) Support importing mainframe sequential datasets

Mariappan Asokan commented on SQOOP-1272:
-----------------------------------------

Hi Gwen,
   Thanks for your comments.  For mainframe imports, there are various means to transfer data.
 FTP is one of them for which an open source implementation of a client library is available.
 Others use proprietary technologies for which there are no open source client libraries available.
 The purpose of this Jira is to provide an implementation using only open source client libraries.
 That is the reason why FTP was chosen.  I agree, in its current form, the implementation
is no different than importing data from platforms other than mainframes.   However, any future
enhancements may make this implementation specific to mainframes.

> There is a growing need to move data from mainframe to HDFS.  This Jira proposes to enhance
Sqoop to support moving a set of sequential mainframe datasets to HDFS.  The attached document
describes a design for this enhancement.
