Hello ,
I have a huge text file which contains the emails and city .
There would be thousands of such records in the file .

I have uploaded the file into Oracle into a clob .

Now I want to read the clob and do some procesing for each line
i.e . : email,city

I want to get each line from the clob .

Could someone kindly point me to an example
Also what are the best practices while reading from clob ?

Thanks in advance ,

The easest way is to call getCharacterStream() on the Clob. That way you can deal with the result as a familiar reader object.
