Blob = Binary Large OBject, e.g. an image

Clob = Character Large OBject, e.g. a large chunk of text

They map to the SQL types of the same names.

This forum is for JBoss questions. Since this is a generic database question, I am actually going to move this to the JDBC forum

What kind of example do you need? Create table statement? select? insert?

Which RDBMS? Some have special syntax for clobs/blobs.
