Gwen Shapira commented on SQOOP-1450:
-------------------------------------

Since yesterday (SQOOP-1390 ) Sqoop supports Parquet directly. So no need for Avro2Parquet
converter.

> Currently sqoop imports the avro file directly to hdfs.
> The schema of the avro files is very important to have. Currently the only way to get
the schema from the avro file is to follow the steps listed in http://dev.gbif.org/wiki/display/DEV/Sqoop+to+Hive+using+Avro
> Apart from being able to programmatically use the schema,it also enables us to convert
the avro file to Parquet too using the avro2parquet converter.
