basic question because I think I am just quite grokking how this works.
This documentation details installling JDBC drivers for Sqoop. Seems pretty straight forward, however as we are running Cloudera is in a docker container to test it out, and as containers are supposed to be immutable, how does one go about installing these drivers to /var/lib/sqoop?
Does the documentation assume that we are not running Cloudera in a container, but as a normal install?
at the moment we're just kicking the tyres on Cloudera to get an idea of how we could use it.
I solved the problem as you noted by installing the drivers inside the container, commiting the changes to a new image and creating a new container from said image.
I am guessing things would be more simple on the CDH install. I just had a look at the install instructions for it earlier and it seemed a bit more simple to stick with the docker file for the moment ;)
