Aaron Kimball commented on MAPREDUCE-710:
-----------------------------------------

Oops - that should be {{ant test \-Dtestcase=MySQLAuthTest}}, not {{ant jar}}.

> Sqoop's current support for passwords involves reading passwords from the command line
"--password foo", which makes the password visible to other users via 'ps'. An invisible-console
approach should be taken.
> Related, Sqoop transmits passwords to mysqldump in the same fashion, which is also insecure.
