Subject [jira] [Created] (SQOOP-2288) Improve Avro schema generation
Date Thu, 09 Apr 2015 01:03:12 GMT

-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Improve Avro schema generation
                 Key: SQOOP-2288
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-2288
             Project: Sqoop
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.4.5
            Reporter: Jarek Jarcec Cecho


In SQOOP-2252 we've added default value to all Avro schemas - {{NULL}} as by default we're
creating all columns in Avro as nullable. I think that this can be further improved:

* Instead of failing back to allow all columns to contain {{NULL}}, we should propagate this
information from table itself.
* We could also propagate the column's default value from database.
* We might even add parameter {{\-\-map\-column\-avro\-default}} that will enable to specify
any other default value (similar to {{\-\-map\-column\-java}} argument).
