Sqoop - Import All Tables


Advertisements


This chapter describes how to import all the tables from the RDBMS database server to the HDFS. Each table data is stored in a separate directory and the directory name is same as the table name.

Syntax

The following syntax is used to import all tables.

$ sqoop import-all-tables (generic-args) (import-args) 
$ sqoop-import-all-tables (generic-args) (import-args)

Example

Let us take an example of importing all tables from the userdb database. The list of tables that the database userdb contains is as follows.

 +--------------------+
 |      Tables        |
 +--------------------+
 |      emp           |
 |      emp_add       |
 |      emp_contact   |
 +--------------------+

The following command is used to import all the tables from the userdb database.

$ sqoop import-all-tables \
--connect jdbc:mysql://localhost/userdb \
--username root

Note − If you are using the import-all-tables, it is mandatory that every table in that database must have a primary key field.

The following command is used to verify all the table data to the userdb database in HDFS.

$ $HADOOP_HOME/bin/hadoop fs -ls

It will show you the list of table names in userdb database as directories.
