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.

Hi All,

I want to import a picture from db2 to hdfs via sqoop with following steps.
  1. Save one picture into db2.
  2. Import the picture into hdfs from db2 via sqoop
  3. Import the picture from hdfs into db2 again.

Here are my questions:
  1. could sqoop support this scenario?
  2. is there data format transformation during these imports?
Could you please give your answers. Thanks

Thanks
Fangfang Chen
