>                 Key: MAPREDUCE-1449
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1449
>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: contrib/sqoop
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
>            Reporter: mingran wang
> http://archive.cloudera.com/docs/sqoo... 
> The document above shows that " To guarantee correctness of your input, you must select
an ordering column for which each row has a unique value. If duplicate values appear in the
ordering column, the results of the import are undefined, and Sqoop will not be able to detect
the error." 
> I read the source code for sqoop, it seems that the column to split by doesn't have to
be a unique key. Plus, when the primary key is a composite key, the sqoop code only takes
the first column of the composite key which in most cases is not unique key anyways. 
> I also checked the output when non-unique key is used to split, there is nothing wrong
with the result. 
> I am wondering if the document is wrong, or there is some hidden trickiness that I am
not aware of. 
> I am using sqoop 20.1.
