I'm using tSqoopImport in Talend Open Studio for BigData (v. 6.3.1) to import data from SQL Server to Avro files in HDFS.
I'm getting in trouble with the date type columns of SQL Server, because sqoop matches those colums to Long type.
When I use the option --map-column-java date_column1=String,date_column2=String... to match the date type to string, it works fine running into Sqoop line commands.
But when I try to do the same in talend, it seems to do nothing:
Advanced settings -> check Define Java mapping and type:
Any idea how to resolve this issue?
Thanks in advance.
Could you please try to map your SQL types to appropriate Hive types through "Define hive mapping" to see if it works?
