Installing the JDBC Drivers
Sqoop does not ship with third party JDBC drivers. You must download them separately and save them to the /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/ directory. The following sections show how to install the most common JDBC Drivers.
Installing the MySQL JDBC Driver
Download the MySQL JDBC driver from http://www.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/5.1.html. You will need to sign up for an account if you don't already have one, and log in, before you can download it. Then copy it to the /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/ directory. For example:
$ sudo cp mysql-connector-java-version/mysql-connector-java-version-bin.jar /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/
- At the time of publication, version was 5.1.25, but the version may have changed by the time you read this.
- If you installed Sqoop via Cloudera Manager, using parcels, copy the .jar file to $HADOOP_CLASSPATH instead of /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/.
Installing the Oracle JDBC Driver
You can download the JDBC Driver from the Oracle website, for example http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/jdbc-112010-090769.html. You must accept the license agreement before you can download the driver. Download the ojdbc6.jar file and copy it to /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/ directory:
$ sudo cp ojdbc6.jar /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/
Installing the Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver
Download the Microsoft SQL Server JDBC driver from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=11774 and copy it to the /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/ directory. For example:
$ curl -L 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/2/A/02AAE597-3865-456C-AE7F-613F99F850A8/sqljdbc_4.0.2206.100_enu.tar.gz' | tar xz $ sudo cp sqljdbc_4.0/enu/sqljdbc4.jar /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/
Installing the PostgreSQL JDBC Driver
Download the PostgreSQL JDBC driver from http://jdbc.postgresql.org/download.html and copy it to the /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/ directory. For example:
$ curl -L 'http://jdbc.postgresql.org/download/postgresql-9.2-1002.jdbc4.jar' -o postgresql-9.2-1002.jdbc4.jar $ sudo cp postgresql-9.2-1002.jdbc4.jar /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/
