Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-1495) EnclosedBy and EscapedBy set to \000 are not ignored
Date Tue, 02 Dec 2014 16:08:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-1495?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14231683#comment-14231683

Peter Hannam commented on SQOOP-1495:
-------------------------------------

Fair enough - I was just going off the comment above the variables.  Will make the change
to {{Char}} and re-attach.  Cheers!

> In {{DelimiterSet}} there is the following comment above two option variables:
> {code:java}
> // If these next two fields are '\000', then they are ignored.
> private char enclosedBy;
> private char escapedBy;
> {code}
> We just found a problem with this whilst doing a Sqoop export, without setting the parameters
for enclosing or escaping (i.e. they're left as default \000).  Looking at the code in {{RecordParser}}
it appears that although the comment says they would be ignored if set to \000 they actually
aren't.
> For some reason some of the records we're trying to export have \000 in a column.  This
is fine as long as the \000 isn't just before the delimiter.
> This is fine {{foo\000bar|moo}} - two columns are exported.
> This isn't fine {{foo\000|bar}} - only one column is exported.
> Looking through {{RecordParser}} the problem is that our \000 character is being assumed
to be an enclosing character, so it's then assuming the delimiter is part of a value.  We've
set {{enclosedBy}} to be \000 as a default, let's ignore it value, but then we're encountering
\000 and it's being picked up.
