I already have info from a previous extract in my HDFS path, what I want to know is that if it is possible to add this new set of extracts into the same path I already have without harming my previous laoded data?
You should be able to use sqoop with incremental mode by passing these flags:
--check column colname
where 'colname' is the column to check to see which rows to import and 'val' is the value beyond which you want to import rows. Sqoop will then add more files to the existing HDFS directory.
Thank you Nick, I'll try this (Y)
