Subject RE: Merge failed - timestamp column with null values

Can you paste your sqoop command please?

Are you generating your class with –class-name option? :

Once you do that you should see some code for handling timestamp column similar to listed
below. Here if it encounters \N __cur_str.length() will not be 0 and it will go through else
part and you can check if this is what is failing for you.

    __cur_str = __it.next();
    if (__cur_str.equals("null") || __cur_str.length() == 0) { this.STARTTIME = null; } else
      this.STARTTIME = java.sql.Timestamp.valueOf(__cur_str);

    __cur_str = __it.next();
    if (__cur_str.equals("null") || __cur_str.length() == 0) { this.ENDTIME = null; } else
      this.ENDTIME = java.sql.Timestamp.valueOf(__cur_str);

You can direct sqoop to use null string (“”) for –null-non-string option.


This would put null string in imported row and then the abovementioned check should timestamp
column value to null.

Subject: Merge failed - timestamp column with null values

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to push incremental updates from mysql to hdfs using sqoop import command with
Mergekey option and incremental mode as "lastmodified".

My table has some timestamp columns. I don't see any problems as long as timestamp columns
has some values. But, Problem arises only when it has NULL values. I copied the below exception
from my logs. Also, Incase of Non-timestamp columns having null values, there is no issues.

Error: java.lang.RuntimeException: Can't parse input data: '\N'
