Subject [jira] Created: (MAPREDUCE-783) Rename Sqoop "local" transfer to "direct"
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 01:03:14 GMT
Rename Sqoop "local" transfer to "direct"
-----------------------------------------

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-783
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-783
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: contrib/sqoop
            Reporter: Aaron Kimball
            Assignee: Aaron Kimball
            Priority: Minor


Sqoop can use tools such as mysqldump to pull from databases instead of JDBC. This is invoked
using the "--local" command line argument. This name is based on a misunderstanding; these
tools typically do offer remote access capability. Sqoop should pass host and port parameters
to underlying tools where appropriate. Similarly, the "local" mode should be renamed, e.g.,
to "direct" mode and use --direct as an argument instead.
