      Description

      Quite often, we want to import blob data type from mysql/SQL Server to Hive.
      Currently we either have to store BLOB data in HBase or pass the data as base64 encoded string. Neither of which is efficient.

      We should support byte array as native data type.

        I also just hit this problem. Maybe use base64 string, but inefficient.
