Fix for SQOOP-937
Review Request #9909 - Created March 13, 2013 and updated
SQOOP generates an ORM file that represents a record in a table for a given connector implememntation. The generated class has methods to read field values off ResultSet, set bind values in PreparedStatements, handle LOB objects in a DB specific way (that the connector represents), parse input fields etc. This file is then compiled and archived using jar and used with the SQOOP job. This ORM instance is generated in all cases, and used to make sure that the data is read and processed in a more or less uniform way. Unfortunately, this generated class is not used by a class of connectors which manage the reading and processing of records themselves. In essence, the whole ORM class is unusable in these instances and is simply ignored. These are typically "direct" connectors which use a DB specific highspeed path. The generation of the ORM class in these cases causes confusion to users. This patch tries to solve this by 1) Providing a capability for the connection managers to declare that they don't depend on the ORM jar file. 2) Generating a dummy ORM jar file with explicit message during generation so that a) users are aware that the class generated is a dummy one b) there is a record that this jar file was generated explicitly c) we don't have to change a whole lot of the codebase to disable the generaration and loading of the jar file. This patch also adds one test.
Added one tests. All unit tests and check style tests passed with no new checkstyle issues
