Performs an incremental import that updates an older dataset with newer records. The file types of the newer and the older datasets must be the same.

tSqoopMerge reads two datasets in HDFS and combines them both using a merge class that is able to parse the datasets, with the newer records overwriting the older records.

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.
