2. How to Load Oracle Tables From Hadoop Tutorial (Part 4 – OSCH Hello World)

In this post, they walk through Alice in Wonderland’s looking glass and do a “Hello World” example for Oracle SQL Connector for HDFS.

This post was to get a toy example working with a single data file. The next post will focus on how to tune OSCH for large data sets living in HDFS and exploit Oracle Parallel query infrastructure for high performance loads.  They will also discuss the pros and cons of using OSCH versus OLH.

3. How to Load Oracle Tables From Hadoop Tutorial (Part 5 – Leveraging Parallelism in OSCH)

In the previous post, they discussed a “Hello World” example for OSCH focusing on the mechanics of getting a toy end-to-end example working. In this post, they talk about how to make it work for big data loads. The next lesson will talk about Oracle Data Pump files generated by OLH, and loaded using OSCH. It will also outline the pros and cons of using various load methods.  This will be followed up with a final tutorial lesson focusing on how to optimize OLH and OSCH for use on Oracle’s engineered systems: specifically Exadata and the BDA.

In part 3 of the series of podcasts, he covered a number of use cases for SQL pattern matching such as: stock market analysis, tracking governance-compliance, call service quality and sessionization.
