Where is MySQL jdbc connector for Sqoop

I am trying to go through assignments for module 9. One of the steps from the chalkboard is to "Download Connector from Google Drive".
I am not sure exactly where on Google Drive that is, I looked through folders for class 7, 8 and 9. Is it embedded inside a zip archive? I believe that I need the following file: mysql-connector-java-5.1.32.tar.gz, which I think I can get from Oracle, if I create an account with them. But I think this course has provided a copy but I cannot find it. Is that correct?

And for the CDH3 VM should it go it /usr/lib/sqoop or /usr/lib/sqoop/lib (or maybe it doesn't matter)

hi Chip,

If you are using Cloudera, then there are Mysql and Postgresql connectors already shipped, which can be found in /usr/lib/sqoop/lib.



You are correct.

I see now that you are referring to the newer virtual machine: cloudera-quickstart-vm-4.4.0-1.

Thank you, you are correct that the appropriate connectors can be found in the folder mentioned, /usr/lib/sqoop/lib.

Since there are so many new concepts introduced and we are moving at such a fast paced, perhaps the assignments could be specific about which VM is being used. I was a bit confused because the assignment was given in module 9, covering sqoop and oozie, where we were still using the CDH3 VM, but now I realize the assignment was being given as a preparation and set up for the next module and so we needed to use the new VM.

Thank You for all your support so far.
