Subject [jira] [Created] (SQOOP-1965) Naming support for Connector, Link, Job instances
Date Sun, 04 Jan 2015 08:32:35 GMT
Jerry Chen created SQOOP-1965:

             Summary: Naming support for Connector, Link, Job instances
                 Key: SQOOP-1965
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-1965
             Project: Sqoop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: sqoop2-api
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: Jerry Chen

Currently, each connector, link or job instance are identified by an id with the type of "long".

The id is used everywhere in the shell to refer that object instance. For example, when creating
a Job, link id number are specified as from or to link.

Using of numbered id is simple for the implementation but the numbered id is very difficult
to make reference and hard to remember.

It is a common practice to give a meaningful name to each instance and thus can be referenced
with the name. This can dramatically increase the usability of the system.
