Defines the arguments required by Sqoop for transferring data to a RDBMS.

tSqoopExport calls sqoop to transfer data from the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) to a relational database management system (RDBMS).

Please be aware that some features provided by this component are only supported by the latest Sqoop version. For further information about the availability of each feature, see Apache's documentation about Sqoop.

Information noteNote:

Sqoop is typically installed in every Hadoop distribution. But if the Hadoop distribution you need to use have no Sqoop installed, you have to install one on your own and ensure to add the Sqoop command line to the PATH variable of that distribution. For further information about how to install Sqoop, see the documentation of Sqoop.

This component is not shipped with your Talend Studio by default. You need to install it using the Feature Manager. For more information, see Installing features using the Feature Manager.
