[ANNOUNCE] Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata 1.6c5

Super Collaborator
We are pleased to announce the general availability of the Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata 1.6c5. 
New Features in Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata Version 1.6c5
  • Upgrades the JDBC driver to version and the TDCH library to version 1.5.0. These libraries contain several bug fixes and improvements.
  • Adds the --schema argument, used to override the <td-instance> value in the connection string of the Sqoop command. For example, if the connection string in the Sqoop command is jdbc:teradata:// <td-host>/DATABASE=database1, but you specify --schema database2, your data is imported from database2 and not database1. If the connection string does not contain the DATABASE parameter 
— for example jdbc:teradata://<td-host>/CHARSET=UTF8) — you can also use the --schema databasename argument to have Sqoop behave as if you specified the jdbc:teradata://<td-host>/DATABASE=databasename,CHARSET=UTF8 connection string.
