Pros and Cons
- Provides generalized JDBC extensions to migrate data between most database systems
- Generates Java classes upon reading database records for use in other code utilizing Hadoop's client libraries
- Allows for both import and export features
- Sqoop2 development seems to have stalled. I have set it up outside of a Cloudera CDH installation, and I actually prefer it's "Sqoop Server" model better than just the CLI client version that is Sqoop1. This works especially well in a microservices environment, where there would be only one place to maintain the JDBC drivers to use for Sqoop.
