clob.setCharacterStream(1); Unsupported feature

I am trying to insert a CLOB into a Oracle Database. Oracle 9i.

In my SP I insert an empty CLOB and then return a clob as an out parameter which I then set a writer to so that I can write to the clob.

But when I run my application I get the following Error.

Exception Class...:java.sql.SQLException
Exception Message.:Unsupported feature
Failing Class..... racle.jdbc.dbaccess.DBError
Failing Method....:throwSqlException
Failing File......
Failing Line No...:134
Previous Exception:null

From Code :


System.out.println("MISDAO StoreProcEnterMISData()Get a Clob");
Clob clob =

System.out.println("Clob size

StoreProcEnterMISData()Set up a writer");

Writer writer = clob.setCharacterStream(1);

Is setCharacterStream no longer supported or is it a misleading error message.

Thanks for any help.

I agree. Here's the link:
