Subject Re: Can sqoop transfer pictures from db2 to hdfs?
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2014 20:24:05 GMT
Hey there,

#1: It seems Sqoop2 does support import and export from and to DB2 (
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-329).
#2: There shouldn't be any unexpected transformations on Binary data. With
other data types, you have the option of specifying what value will be used
as null. You can, of course, define arbitrary transformations by using a
free form query.
