Hi all,
I am trying to retreive a blob from the oracle 8.1.6.0.0 using jdk1.3. I tried most of the method's as per the API but could not get any result.
blob = (java.sql.Blob) rs.getObject(3);
InputStream in = blob.getBinaryStream();
byte[] b_blob = new byte[blob.length()];
b_blob = in.getBytes(1, blob.length());
// length = blob.length();
// txtfield.append("Length of blob : " + length);
Is there any other way out to retreive the blob. I have tried get Blob method as well. Moreover, I am not able to print the length of the blob as well.
I was able to insert the blob in the oracle database but could not check it exactly what is going in. As I tried to import the table in MS Access, it give me long binary data(AS MS access does not have objects). Can any one please, help me in how to check what is inserted in the table and also how to retreive the blob....Sample code is most welcome.
tia.........
