hi all,
am trying to read a BLOB from an oracle db using java1.5 (ojdbc5.jar) and both getBinaryStream() and getBytes() returns null. Have inserted a BLOB in that row which i am fetching so i dont know why i am getting null ??





any suggestions on what could be wrong ??

Have you tried getBlob()?

yes have tried getBlob() but it still returns null. Have found that the BLOB in the db is actually null even though when i insert BLOB there are no errors thrown and it looks like the insert worked !!

ran this sql to find out the length of BLOB and they are all null :




heres how i insert the BLOB :




Please point out if you see anything wrong with the insert BLOB code.
