Can you please clarify whether you want to connect the back end database of the web portal?

Or you want to consume a Web API ?

 

If the answer to the first question is yes then Sqoop is the tool you're looking for. In the other case, you can consume the data in real-time with Nifi and Kafka.

 

Thanks,

Bascially i am working on a project related to data exchange between two users. The users will have a account in the webpotal and will upload the files on that webportal that will be stored HDFS file system. I want to know which tool is better for this use case.

@MAB,

 

If these are internal users then you can give them access to HUE (comes bundled with CDH and CDP) and they can do file exchange and much more.

 

If these are external users and you indeed want to create a separate portal for the data exchange, you can check the WebHDFS REST API.

 

Thanks,
