SQOOP Not able to import table

I am running below command on sqoop

sqoop import --connect jdbc:mysql://localhost/hadoopguide --table widgets

my version of sqoop : Sqoop Hadoop -- Hadoop

Both taken from hortonworks distribution. all the paths like HADOOP_HOME, HCAT_HOME, SQOOP_HOME are set properly. I am able to get list of databases, list of tables from mysql database by running list-database, list-tables commands in sqoop. Even able to get data from --query 'select * from widgets'; but when i use --table option getting below error.

Specify the --bindir where the compiled code and .jar file should be located.

Without these arguments, Sqoop would place the generated Java source file in your current working directory and the compiled .class file and .jar file in /tmp/sqoop-<username>/compile.

Use the --bindir option and point to your current working directory.

sqoop import --bindir ./ --connect jdbc:mysql://localhost/hadoopguide --table widgets

The problem is resolved after i copied the .class file from /tmp/sqoop-hduser/compile/ to hdfs /home/hduser/ and also the current working directory from where i am running sqoop.

For importing a specific table into hdfs, run:

sqoop import --connect jdbc:mysql://localhost/databasename --username root --password *** --table tablename --bindir /usr/lib/sqoop/lib/ --driver com.mysql.jdbc.Driver --target-dir /directory-name

Make sure that /usr/lib/sqoop/* and /usr/local/hadoop/* should be owned by the same user otherwise it will give error like "Permission denied".

PS: Make sure that you have installed mysql-java connector before you run the command. I installed hadoop version 2.7.3 and connector 5.0.8

C++ allocators, specifically passing constructor arguments to objects allocated with boost::interprocess::cached_adaptive_pool

This is an embarrassing question, but even the well-written documentation provided with boost.interprocess hasn't been enough for me to figure out how to do this.

How can I create a custom cleanup mode for git?

git trac git-commit

I'd like to have a commit message cleanup that will not necessarily remove lines beginning with a # in the message itself. The default --cleanup=strip removes all lines starting with a # character....
