+Oracle: Case-Sensitive Catalog Query Errors
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+Problem: While working with Oracle you may encounter problems when Sqoop can
+not figure out column names. This happens because the catalog queries that
+Sqoop uses for Oracle expect the correct case to be specified for the
+user name and table name.
+
+One example, using --hive-import and resulting in a NullPointerException:
+
+----
+1/09/21 17:18:49 INFO manager.OracleManager: Time zone has been set to
+GMT
+11/09/21 17:18:49 DEBUG manager.SqlManager: Using fetchSize for next
+query: 1000
+11/09/21 17:18:49 INFO manager.SqlManager: Executing SQL statement:
+SELECT t.* FROM addlabel_pris t WHERE 1=0

+released connection for jdbc:oracle:thin:

+
+----
+
+.Solution:
+. Specify the user name, which Sqoop is connecting as, in upper case (unless
+it was created with mixed/lower case within quotes).
+. Specify the table name, which you are working with, in upper case (unless
+it was created with mixed/lower case within quotes).
