Hi Abe,

I tried with --driver param, but it does not work for me, and returned the same exception.

My command is 'bin/sqoop import --driver com.mysql.jdbc.Driver --connect jdbc:mysql://hostname:3306/test  --username user --password pwd --table testtbl -m 1 --target-dir /tmp/test6'.

Thanks!

Sam,

Did you try the --driver parameter? It allows you to choose the JDBC driver class.

I think this is a defect of Sqoop, and opened a jira for it: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-1164. I set the priority as Minor, because it has the workaround: only leave the target driver jar file in the sqoop/lib folder, but remove other driver jar files from the folder. However, it should be mentioned that when we have many dirver jar files under sqoop/lib folder for multiple kinds of databases, or a script will connect to different databases, this workaround can not work well.

Thanks!

Hi Experts,

Under SQOOP/lib, I have both hsqldb driver jar file and mysql driver jar file:
- lib/hsqldb-1.8.0.10.jar
- lib/mysql-connector-java-5.1.20-bin.jar

But, when I try to connect to mysql db using sqoop import tool, sqoop will pick up hsqldb driver jar and returned following exception. Even if I add '--connection-manager org.apache.sqoop.manager.MySQLManager' into the command, this issue still exists. But, after I removed the hsqldb jar file from lib folder, this issue does not exist any more.

Why? What's the correct method to invoke import tool to avoid such issue? Thanks!
