Subject Re: sqoop 1.4.7 nullpointer during import
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2019 13:39:10 GMT
Hey Mark,

Couple of comments

   - Generally I would discourage using the dot "." character with params,
   you will likely observe mixed behavior
   - When using --hive-import Sqoop expects
      - Hive targets (--hive-database and --hive-table)
      - The --target-dir becomes transient, a "temp" location not the Hive
      table path

If you are trying to use Hive Import try

sqoop import \
--bindir ./ \
--connect {database_string} \
--username {user} \
--password {password} \
--table {table_name} \
--hive-import \
--hive-database {hive_database} \
--hive-table {hive_table}
[--hive-overwrite] /* append is the default */
--target-dir /{temporary_staging_dir}/ \
--delete-target-dir \

If you are trying to bypass Hive Import and write directly to the Hive
table path try

sqoop import \
--bindir ./ \
--connect {database_string} \
--username {user} \
--password {password} \
--table {table_name} \
--target-dir /{hive_table_path}/ \
[--delete-target-dir | --append] \
