Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1644) Remove Sqoop from Apache Hadoop (moving to github)
Date Mon, 29 Mar 2010 22:28:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1644?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12851138#action_12851138

Aaron Kimball commented on MAPREDUCE-1644:

Original message sent to common-user, mapreduce-user, hive-user, and general@hadoop.apache.org:

Hi Hadoop, Hive, and Sqoop users,

For the past year, the Apache Hadoop MapReduce project has played host to Sqoop, a command-line
tool that performs parallel imports and exports between relational databases and HDFS. We've
developed a lot of features and gotten a lot of great feedback from users. While Sqoop was
a contrib project in Hadoop, it has been steadily improved and grown.

But the contrib directory is a home for new or small projects incubating underneath Hadoop's
umbrella. Sqoop is starting to look less like a small project these days. In particular, a
feature that has been growing in importance for Sqoop is its ability to integrate with Hive.
In order to facilitate this integration from a compilation and testing standpoint, we've pulled
Sqoop out of contrib and into its own repository hosted on github.

You can download all the relevant bits here: http://www.github.com/cloudera/sqoop

The code there will run in conjunction with the Apache Hadoop trunk source. (Compatibility
with other distributions/versions is forthcoming.)

While we've changed hosts, Sqoop will keep the same license -- future improvements will continue
to remain Apache 2.0-licensed. We welcome the contributions of all in the open source community;
there's a lot of exciting work still to be done! If you'd like to help out but aren't sure
where to start, send me an email and I can recommend a few areas where improvements would
be appreciated.

Want some more information about Sqoop? An introduction is available here: http://www.cloudera.com/sqoop
A ready-to-run release of Sqoop is included with Cloudera's Distribution for Hadoop: http://archive.cloudera.com
And its reference manual is available for browsing at http://archive.cloudera.com/docs/sqoop

If you have any questions about this move process, please ask me.
