According to http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg246503.pdf (around pg 195) the SQL type "CHAR(x) AS BIT DATA" is not available to Java UDTFs using the PARAMETER STYLE JAVA, and so must be dealt with using PARAMETER STYLE DB2GENERAL as a com.ibm.db2.app.Blob object.

One of the columns in the SQL Server table is type binary and I so far have not been able to get the data back to the iSeries as it existed in SQL Server. According to the "Microsoft SQL Server to IBM DB2 UDB Conversion Guide" SQL "binary" maps to DB2 as "Char(x) as Bit Data". The problem is in the Java, in Java the "binary" data type should map to a "byte [ ]" but when I try to perform the "set" operation in Java the RAD IDE doesn't allow it because of error: "The method set(int, short) in the type UDF is not applicable for the arguments (int, byte)" I've also tried reading the binary column as a string but and in DB2 as a Char(15) column but data is simply not the same. Anyone have ideas about how to create a UDTF that reads SQL Server "binary" data type and returns the column to DB2?
