Hi Ganesh,
Sqoop is using DB2 JDBC connector to talk with DB2 running on mainframes.
The data unpacking is actually done by the JDBC Connector itself as
otherwise the connector would not be compliant with the JDBC specification.
Sqoop is taking advantage of that to transfer your data into HDFS unpacked.
