      Description

      Binary datatype contains sequence of bytes that can consist of arbitrary patterns. It is useful in cases where arbitrary patterns need to be stored and retrieved without associating any datatype specific semantics like character set, numeric interpretation, etc with it.

      Currently, the existing datatype that is somewhat close to BINARY is ISO VARCHAR. But it is not really binary as it follows character semantics.

      This Jira is filed to add support for true binary datatype  in Trafodion.

      Detailed spec with syntax, semantics and operations on binary datatypes will be added to this jira.
