Subject [jira] [Commented] (SQOOP-792) Support for Hive Binary type
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2016 04:35:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SQOOP-792?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15508708#comment-15508708

Márton Balassi commented on SQOOP-792:

Hey All,

Are there any plans to follow up on this by any chance? The TODOs are still in the code, e.g.
[1]. :)
Importing to Hive would become much more convenient with this feature. Exchanging a quick
mail with [~jarcec] brought up that Hive might require some transformations of the binary
data into a text format (maybe base64) which was the cause of delaying this feature.
