Hi i have a question. I have got a table with Data Type BLOB in mysql database
i have a jsp page with <html:file > input and that gives me the FormFile object in my ActionForm using which i can get the InputStream Object , but i can't figure out how to save it to the the table using setBlob on my prepared Statement. i was thinking about calling setBinary() on my prepared statement but it needs a third argument the length of the data and thats where i am getting stuck
Prakash, I recommend not using the setBlob function due to the difficulty you described with creating a Blob. Instead, I would use setBinaryStream(). There is a version of the method that only takes two parameters, so you don't need the length.
Thanks for the help. well i am using 1.5 but some how i was able to use setBinaryStream(). What i did was like this. I got FormFile object from my Action Form from FormFile i got InputStream and a lenght property Then i used
the problem i am facing now is using the above mentioned code i am able to save a .jpeg file to my database (which is of type Blob) however when i try to save an audio file (.mp3, or .wmv) i get the error message that the "query exceeded the max_allowed_packets " i am using MySQL as my Database server.
is it something(some variable) i need to set somewhere in my MySQL server? -Thanks. [ November 20, 2007: Message edited by: prakash chauhan ]
