CLOB in Hibernate

Hello,

I had a column defined as Varchar2(4000) in Oracle database and defined as the following in the Value Object.


I needed to change the column to allow more than 4000 chars, and since the maximum limit of varchar is 4000, i needed to change it to CLOB.
So, i changed the data type of the VALUE column in the database as CLOB.

Surprisingly, although i did not make any changes in the value object(like defining the column as CLOB etc), it has started working.
I am not sure whether it is the expected behavior and everything's good or i am in for a surprise when suddenly it will fail.

Any comments are appreciated.

Regards

Rahul Babbar
