-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Sqoop2: Generic JDBC: Drop support for specifying custom query when
exporting data
                 Key: SQOOP-2441
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-2441
             Project: Sqoop
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Jarek Jarcec Cecho
            Assignee: Jarek Jarcec Cecho
             Fix For: 1.99.7


In the early days of the development we've added new feature to the JDBC connector that enabled
user to specify custom query to insert the data - similarly as user can specify custom query
to select data. I see several problems with the feature:

* It's actually not working at all right now because we're not able to [generate schema from
the custom query|https://github.com/apache/sqoop/blob/sqoop2/connector/connector-generic-jdbc/src/main/java/org/apache/sqoop/connector/jdbc/GenericJdbcToInitializer.java#L66].
* It doesn't allow us to do any batching as we're doing in Sqoop 1 when we're putting several
rows into the same query which will hurt performance.
* I did not see any real request for this feature from users

Hence I would like to propose dropping this unfinished/non-working feature all together. Any
thoughts?
