datastax bulk loader vs. sstableloader

hi

few years ago i wrote an export utility that extracted data from Oracle into sstables.
we than used the sstableloader to load the files into cassandra (DSE or OSS).

i now see that datastax bulk loader is open source, i wonder if it's better than what i did so far.

thanks

@yariv.amar_82168 You would have had to implement a SSTable writer in order to convert the data to SSTables. With the DS Bulk Loader, you can import the data straight to a Cassandra cluster in CSV or JSON format.

It's designed so you no longer need to write code for bulk imports. Cheers!
