             Summary: Add an option for uppercase/lowercase column name mapping 
between HCatalog and RDBMS cloumn name list
                 Key: SQOOP-3029
             Project: Sqoop
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Attila Szabo
             Fix For: 1.4.7

The current implementation of HCatalog related export works out of the box with 
RDBMS systems (e.g. Oracle) if the column names match case sensitive, although 
in several cases the column names are received as an UPPER_CASE list from the 
RDBMS, and thus the export fails, within the ClassWriter.

Although the users have the possibility to define the name of the columns 
explicit with the --columns option, in case of 100+ columns it's not practical.

It would be great to have an option which could do the matching in lower and 
UPPER case as well. The start point for this implementation should start from 
SqoopHCatUtilities#configureHCat method with respect to ensure HCatalog api is 
able to handle the different cased column names.
