Subject Re: oozie sqoop write query result to a file
Date Wed, 25 Nov 2015 05:45:40 GMT

You could run your COUNT query in an Oozie shell or Java action and capture
the output to use in a decision tree inside Oozie. You would access this
count value from a key based on the echo output from Oozie shell or a key
from a Java properties class. Both are documented well in Oozie.
