Defines the arguments required by Sqoop for writing the data of your interest into HDFS.

tSqoopImport calls Sqoop to transfer data from a relational database management system (RDBMS) such as MySQL or Oracle into the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).

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.
