I want to insert .tar files into the DB. Is there any option of directly doing it? Or any other approach to follow upon.

Sounds like you need a BLOB field. You may want to compress the files before storing them (maybe using GZIP).

Is GZIP used to decompress the .tar files? Cause I have tried using Zip, but it didnt work on the .tar files.

GZIP -just like ZIP- is a compression and decompression method. Both work fine for TARs if you do it right. TAR itself is not compressed, just archived. The Commons Compress library (http://commons.apache.org/compress/) has everything you need to make working with TARs as easy as working with ZIP/GZIP.

Do you have a sample java code for this?

What are you looking for that's not explained on the "Examples" page?
