as per the below link
new open source contribution to Sqoop 1.4.6 from Syncsort will provide an implementation for the new Mainframe Import tool. This implementation support for all Mainframe (z/OS) record formats with the ability to specify COBOL Copybook metadata, and VSAM file formats. Syncsort’s plug-in provides a feature-rich version supporting all data types, e.g. Packed-Decimal, etc. and translation of EBCDIC encoded fixed length binary data to ASCII encoded variable length text in HDFS.
Is anyone used this new open source implementation, please provide the link or usage steps as I have to import data from mainframe system which contains binary and packed decimal data in VSAM files.
Thanks in Advamce...
I tried moving data from mainframe z/os to apache hive using SQOOP 1.4.6, it is possible for flat files and GDC files. Tried with VSAM files, this type of file is showing error like no dataset found. After analyzing in depth VSAM files are received as null object. It seems like bug in SQOOP or Syncsort. Can anybody fix this ?
