Is there going to be support for Sqoop 2.x, for the upcoming versions of HDP?
Or is there any way to upgrade the current Sqoop version in HDP 2.6 ?
Sqoop 2.x is not supported with current versions of HDP. Latest version of HDP 3.0 is with Sqoop 1.4.7.
You could upgrade the Sqoop version, however it is not not certified with HDP versions.
