Integrating data from multiple sources is essential in the age of big data, but it can be a challenging and time-consuming task. This handy cookbook provides dozens of ready-to-use recipes for using Apache Sqoop, the command-line interface application that optimizes data transfers between relational databases and Hadoop.

Sqoop is both powerful and bewildering, but with this cookbook’s problem-solution-discussion format, you’ll quickly learn how to deploy and then apply Sqoop in your environment. The authors provide MySQL, Oracle, and PostgreSQL database examples on GitHub that you can easily adapt for SQL Server, Netezza, Teradata, or other relational systems.
  • Transfer data from a single database table into your Hadoop ecosystem
  • Keep table data and Hadoop in sync by importing data incrementally
  • Import data from more than one database table
  • Customize transferred data by calling various database functions
  • Export generated, processed, or backed-up data from Hadoop to your database
  • Run Sqoop within Oozie, Hadoop’s specialized workflow scheduler
  • Load data into Hadoop’s data warehouse (Hive) or database (HBase)
  • Handle installation, connection, and syntax issues common to specific database vendors

Written by members of the Apollo product team, this is the official guide to the Alpha release of Adobe Apollo, the new cross-platform desktop runtime from Adobe Labs.

Apollo for Adobe Flex Developers Pocket Guide explains how to build and deploy Flash-based Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) to the desktop using Adobe’s Flex framework. This book describes concisely how Apollo works, and offers numerous examples for those who want to start building RIAs for the desktop right away.

Web browsers were designed to deliver and display HTML-based documents, not applications. The conflict between document- and application-focused functionality creates several problems when deploying applications via the browser. Adobe Apollo gives you the best of both worlds—the web development model and true desktop functionality. This pocket guide explains how to:

  • Set up your development environment
  • Create your first application
  • Use the File I/O API
  • Use HTML within Flex-based Apollo applications
  • Use the included Apollo mini-cookbook for common tasks.

The book also includes a guide to Apollo packages, classes, and command-line tools. Once you understand the basics of building a Flex-based Apollo application, this pocket guide makes an ideal reference for tackling specific problems. About the Authors Mike Chambers has spent the last 8 years building applications that target the Flash runtime. During that time, he has worked with numerous technologies including Flash, Generator, .NET, Central, Flex, and Ajax. He is currently the senior product manager for developer relations for Apollo. Rob Dixon began developing Flash applications in 1998, back when Rich Internet Applications weren't nearly as well off. He is presently the Content Architect for the Platform Documentation group at Adobe. Jeff Swartz first worked at Macromedia (now Adobe Systems) in 1992 and has participated in a number of multimedia and web software projects. He is currently the lead technical writer for the Apollo project.

David Wolber is a leader in App Inventor education and teaching beginners how to program their phones and tablets. His focus is empowering artists, designers, kids, women, men, humanity majors, business students—makers of all types—to add coding to their creative arsenals. His teaching materials, video screencasts, and course-in-a-box are available at, and his students have been chronicled in articles of the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and Wired Magazine.

David is a professor at the University of San Francisco. He taught one of the first App Inventor courses in 2009 as part of a Google pilot and has been teaching and working with the App Inventor teaching community ever since. His teaching materials on the Google and MIT sites, and on, have provided the first introduction to coding for thousands of new app builders, and his course-in-a-box materials have served as a template for many App Inventor courses at the K-12 and university levels. David recently took a sabbatical at MIT to work with co-author Hal Abelson and contribute to the development of App Inventor 2. He also is contributing to the Mobile Computer Science Principles ( course for the new Advanced Placement (AP) course is US high schools.

Harold (Hal) Abelson, a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, has a longstanding interest in using computation as a conceptual framework in teaching. He has played a key role in fostering MIT institutional educational technology initiativeI, and is a founding director of Creative Commons and Public Knowledge. Hal’s book, Turtle Geometry, written with Andrea diSessa in 1981, presented a computational approach to geometry that has been cited as "the first step in a revolutionary change in the entire teaching/learning process."
