    Hi Manoj,
    I guess it all depends what use cases are. Maybe the community can take a survey?

    +1 for sqoop



    I guess it also depends on what the most common data source for HDFS is :-) . Since Sqoop transfers data from structured and non structured data bases , it seems like a no brainer…but this is just an opinion and hence i wanted to validate

    Hi, Manoj

    You are right. There are different tools for different use cases.
