Subject SQOOP export of Sequence Files (Hive tables)
Date Thu, 03 Sep 2015 22:24:55 GMT
Can we confirm or deny that Sqoop 1.4.6 can or can't export Sequence files to RDBMS via JDBC

I get an error from Sqoop regarding not being able to cast BytesWriteable to LongWriteable
regardless of which data-type i'm reading from (in a Hive table) or writing to (MySQL or SQL
Server table).

There is no mention in the documentation of being able to export FROM (or not being able to
export FROM) a Sequence File stored in HDFS.

I can successfully SQOOP data from a TEXTFILE stored in HDFS but this sort of takes away the
point of SQOOP and HDFS (in my opinion).

Can anyone clarify this?
