I would like to store XML in a database, however as my application currently runs under mysql, sql 2005 and oracle 10g I would like to use a column type in each database which is the same, at least from the perspective of jdbc.
Can anyone suggest anything, all the vendors seem to have different names for similar types and it's very confusing.
The data will not be indexed and is just for storage. I cannot guarantee that an xml will be limited to only small sizes.
