I don't use Sybase, so I can't really answer your question -- sorry -- but does it support BLOBs (Binary Large OBject)? Is there a JDBC driver for Sybase that also supports BLOBs? You may find the answers through the Sybase Web site?

Good Luck,

I think, you can use image Datatype to store pdf in your Sybase database.
I agree. Here's the link:
