Wed Jun 27 12:59:45 PDT 2018 WARN: Establishing SSL connection without server's identity verification is not recommended. According to MySQL 5.5.45+, 5.6.26+ and 5.7.6+ requirements SSL connection must be established by default if explicit option isn't set. For compliance with existing applications not using SSL the verifyServerCertificate property is set to 'false'. You need either to explicitly disable SSL by setting useSSL=false, or set useSSL=true and provide truststore for server certificate verification.

Based on your error
SQLImporter:executeMapDCommand:472 - SQL Execute failed - err No negative number in type definition.) I suspect the
create table has got some kind of bogus scale or precision in one of the columns form the metadata from oracle.
There may be a type in your oracle schema that we do not currently support that is included in your select statement
