Subject Inserting large LOB as a stream...
Date Tue, 16 Feb 2010 18:15:53 GMT

I am working on writing a test for INSERT statement which will cause
INSERT trigger to fire. The INSERT is being done into a table with a
large BLOB column. The table definition looks as follows create table
table1 (id int, status smallint, bl blob(2G))

My goal is to run this INSERT statement inside a java program with a
limited heap to see if I will run into any OOMs during trigger
execution because we are trying to stream the data into memory. The
way I am trying to insert large LOB is as follows
		System.out.println("Inserting into table1 to cause insert trigger to fire");
		PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement(
			"insert into table1(id, status, bl) values(101, 0, ?)");
		byte[] arr = new byte[300000*1024];
		for (int i = 0; i < arr.length; i++)
		arr[i] = (byte)4;
		ps.setBinaryStream(1, new ByteArrayInputStream(arr), arr.length);
But the above code runs into OOM for byte[] arr = new
byte[300000*1024]; because I do not have enough heap available. I was
wondering if there was a way for me to use a stream to insert a pretty
large LOB into my table without having a physical file on the disk
from which I will stream the data in. I do not care about the actual
data. As shown above, I am just inserting a large quantity of (byte)4
in the LOB. Would appreciate if anyone knows of a way for me to stream
large data into LOB while running with limited heap.
