Apache KNOX provides a single gateway to many services in your Hadoop cluster. You can leverage the KNOX shell DSL interface to interact with services such as WebHdfs, WebHCat (Templeton), Oozie, HBase, etc. For example, using groovy and DSL you can submit Hive queries via WebHCat (Templeton) as simple as:

println "[Hive.groovy] Copy Hive query file to HDFS"
Hdfs.put(session).text( hive_query ).to( jobDir + "/input/query.hive" ).now()

jobId = Job.submitHive(session) \
            .file("${jobDir}/input/query.hive") \
            .arg("-v").arg("--hiveconf").arg("TABLE_NAME=${tmpTableName}") \
            .statusDir("${jobDir}/output") \

submitSqoop Job API

With version of Apache KNOX 0.10.0, you can now write application using KNOX DSL for Apache SQOOP and easily submit SQOOP jobs. The WebHCAT Job class in DSL language now supports submitSqoop() as follow:

    .command("import --connect jdbc:mysql://hostname:3306/dbname ... ")

submitSqoop Request takes the following arguments:

  • command (String) - The sqoop command string to execute.
  • files (String) - Comma separated files to be copied to the templeton controller job.
  • optionsfile (String) - The remote file which contain Sqoop command need to run.
  • libdir (String) - The remote directory containing jdbc jar to include with sqoop lib
  • statusDir (String) - The remote directory to store status output.

which will return jobId as Response.

Simple example

In this example we will run a simple sqoop job to extract scBlastTab table to HFDS from the public genome database (mySQL) at UCSC.

First, import the following packages:

import com.jayway.jsonpath.JsonPath
import groovy.json.JsonSlurper
import static java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit.SECONDS

Next, establish connection to KNOX gateway with Hadoop.login:

// Get gatewayUrl and credentials from environment
def env = System.getenv()
gatewayUrl = env.gateway
username = env.username
password = env.password

jobDir = "/user/" + username + "/sqoop"

session = Hadoop.login( gatewayUrl, username, password )
println "[Sqoop.groovy] Delete " + jobDir + ": " + Hdfs.rm( session ).file( jobDir ).recursive().now().statusCode
println "[Sqoop.groovy] Mkdir " + jobDir + ": " + Hdfs.mkdir( session ).dir( jobDir ).now().statusCode

Define your SQOOP job (assuming SQOOP is already configured with mySql driver already):

// Database connection information

db = [ driver:"com.mysql.jdbc.Driver", url:"jdbc:mysql://", user:"genome", password:"", name:"hg38", table:"scBlastTab", split:"query" ]

targetdir = jobDir + "/" + db.table

sqoop_command = "import --driver ${db.driver} --connect ${db.url} --username ${db.user} --password ${db.password} --table ${db.table} --split-by ${db.split} --target-dir ${targetdir}"

You can now submit the sqoop_command to the cluster with submitSqoop:

jobId = Job.submitSqoop(session) \
            .command(sqoop_command) \
            .statusDir("${jobDir}/output") \

println "[Sqoop.groovy] Submitted job: " + jobId

You can then check job status and output as usual:

println "[Sqoop.groovy] Polling up to 60s for job completion..."

done = false
count = 0
while( !done && count++ < 60 ) {
  sleep( 1000 )
  json = Job.queryStatus(session).jobId(jobId).now().string
  done = json, "\$.status.jobComplete" )
  print "."; System.out.flush();
println ""
println "[Sqoop.groovy] Job status: " + done

// Check output directory
text = session ).dir( jobDir + "/output" ).now().string
json = (new JsonSlurper()).parseText( text )
println json.FileStatuses.FileStatus.pathSuffix

println "\n[Sqoop.groovy] Content of stderr:"
println Hdfs.get( session ).from( jobDir + "/output/stderr" ).now().string

// Check table files
text = session ).dir( jobDir + "/" + db.table ).now().string
json = (new JsonSlurper()).parseText( text )
println json.FileStatuses.FileStatus.pathSuffix



Here is sample output of the above example against Hadoop cluster. You need to have properly configured Hadoop cluster with Apache KNOX gateway, Apache Sqoop and WebHcat (Templeton). Test was ran against BigInsights Hadoop cluster.

From output above you can see the job output as well as the content of the table directory on HDFS which contains 5 parts (used 5 map tasks). WebHcat (Templeton) job console output will go to stderr in this case.

As part of compiling/running your code ensure you have the following dependency: org.apache.knox:gateway-shell:0.10.0.
