I am using Hibernate 3.2, Oracle 10g XE and latest version (10.2.0.2) of thin jdbc driver (ojdbc14.jar). I would like to read from a CLOB using a stream, but it seems impossible. I can read from a CLOB using a Reader, it reads all 18kb of data I have stored there. But all streams return -1, if I try to read them and available() returns 0.
