== Compiling Sqoop

    
   
19

   

    
   
20
Sqoop uses the Maven build system, and it can be compiled and built running the

    
   
21
following commands:

    
   
22

   

    
   
23
  mvn compile # Compile project

    
   
24
  mvn package # Build source artifact

    
   
25
  mvn package -Pbinary # Build binary artifact

    
   
26

   

    
   
27
Sqoop currently supports multiple Hadoop distributions. In order to compile Sqoop

    
   
28
against a specific Hadoop version, please specify the hadoop.profile property in

    
   
29
Maven commands. For example:

    
   
30

   

    
   
31
  mvn package -Pbinary -Dhadoop.profile=100

    
   
32

   

    
   
33
Please refer to the Sqoop documentation for a full list of supported Hadoop

    
   
34
distributions and values of the hadoop.profile property.
