Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-3451) Importing FLOAT from Oracle to Hive results in INTEGER
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2019 16:32:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-3451?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16937896#comment-16937896

Mahesh Balakrishnan commented on SQOOP-3451:

[~dionusos],  Using oracle dump command for float 


*OUTPUT* >>>> Typ=2 Len=2: 193,13,13

Then to understand more I looked into the Datatypes here: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/server.111/b28285/sqlqr06.htm#CHDBBHHE

Where they have mentioned that Code 2 is for both NUMBER and FLOAT but need to look at the
scale which shows whether its a NUMBER or FLOAT
The NUMERIC and DECIMAL datatypes can specify only fixed-point numbers. For those datatypes,
the scale (s) defaults to 0.

The FLOAT datatype is a floating-point number with a binary precision b. The default precision
for this datatype is 126 binary, or 38 decimal.

Since Sqoop is able to get the Scale of the datatype, is it possible to get the scale and
then map it across as Float?  I know it may take time to fix this but we need to document
this so the users leveraging sqoop to load data from Oracle to Hive know what they need to

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: codegen, connectors/oracle, hive-integration
>    Affects Versions: 1.4.7
>            Reporter: Denes Bodo
>            Priority: Major
> We ran into an issue where there is a table created in Oracle 11g:
> {noformat}
> create table floattest (column1 float(30), column2 number(30,-127), column3 number(30));
> {noformat}
> We want to import date from Oracle to Hive:
> {noformat}
> sqoop import -D mapred.child.java.opts='-Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/../dev/urandom'
-Dmapreduce.job.queuename=default --connect "jdbc:oracle:thin:@DBHOST:1521/xe" --username
sqoop --password sqoop --table floattest --hcatalog-database default --hcatalog-table floattest
--create-hcatalog-table --hcatalog-external-table --hcatalog-storage-stanza "stored as orc"

> {noformat}
> In Sqoop logs we see the following:

> stored as orc
> {noformat}
> From this output we can see that Oracle states about column1 has Type=2 which is NUMERIC
(regarding to https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/constant-values.html#java.sql.Types.FLOAT).
Sqoop translates NUMERIC to DECIMAL (https://github.com/apache/sqoop/blob/trunk/src/java/org/apache/sqoop/mapreduce/hcat/SqoopHCatUtilities.java#L1050L1107).
Due to Oracle uses {{scale=-127}} to sign about a NUMERIC that it is a FLOAT instead of stating
{{Type=6}}, Sqoop creates integers (decimal with 0 scale) from NUMBER.
> I think it is the fault of Oracle as it does not use Java Type=6 to sign type of a float.
What do you think?
