Hello,

I am developing web application using JSP and MySql 5.1. I want to store PublicKey as well PrivateKey in my database.

The data type which I use to store key is BLOB. But I dont know how to store or retrive this. I tried with byte[]. By doing this I am able to store and retrive key, but it is as byte[] datatype. I want to retrive this as PublicKey or PrivateKey and there are no ways to convert byte[] to and Key type.

So, where am I goin wrong?? Are there any other ways to store and retrive Key??? And which datatype I should use for field??

Thanks.

Jahnvi..
