> HADOOP-10607 introduces an API to isolate password Storage from applications.   This
can be used to provide the DB password in a secure fashion to Sqoop users.
> The DB passwords can be assigned an alias and stored in a keystore and the alias can
be provided to Sqoop.
> Option to provide the password on the command line (using --password-alias) option can
be introduced as well as enhance the secure file option that we currently have to provide
a new password loader that resolves the alias from keystore.
> We need to detect the availability of the Credential Provider feature and use it and
fail gracefully otherwise
