Oh Sorry
I will specify what I mean

i have an getter and setter method in my Entity Bean. The parameter of the getter and setter is an byte array. (public abstract byte [] getPicData (); and public abstract void setPicData(byte [] picData);
I use Jboss application Server V4.0 and MySQL V.4
When I read a file in png-Format from the client and write it with the help of my Entity Bean in the database (use CMP). The problem is that the file is 200kb befor i write it in the database and 63kb (65565bytes) when i get it from the database. I don't know why

Please help me
