I'll move this thread to our JDBC forum.

Why XML? XML is character-based, and as such not a good fit for binary data. If you're nonetheless set on doing it, some binary-->text conversion would be involved, maybe base64-encoding (the Apache Commons Codec library can do that).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
