Subject CLOB vs BLOB
Date Thu, 26 Aug 2004 18:48:42 GMT

  This might be a bit off Topic but here goes...

  I don't see the need for a CLOB type in a Database (to be more specific - Oracle) when there
is support for a BLOB type. Any CLOB can be stored as a BLOB, so what is the need for a CLOB?
I agree that any other type too can be stored in a BLOB, but I also understant they have other
features that are not present in a BLOB and they are faster than a BLOB (BLOB is a pointer,
but primitive types are directly stored). Thus it makes sense having primitive data types.

  I don't see any feature in a CLOB that is not present in a BLOB. Obviously I'm missing something
- can someone point out what I'm missing?

Subject: setting sequence start value in schema-xml file

Hi all,

is it possible to set a start value (and increment step) in the schema xml file? I didn't
find anything when looking through the DTD for the id-method-parameter tag. But maybe someone
already did that and can give me a short hint.

Thank you.
