Thanks for all the replys!
 
I know it is not the best solution to store large files in a database, but it was the easiest in an ejb3 environment.
My knowledge of the maximum file size seems to be a bit outdated. What I have found now is a sizelimit for Fat32 of 4 GB, NTFS has no limit. I hope no one has used Fat32 on his WindowsXP installation and my fears are causeless.
 
None the less does anybody know of a working example of a table function that returns a part of the filesystem as a ResultSet?
 
Thanks again!
