Subject Re: Question about New Oracle Driver and Blobs
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2006 20:49:46 GMT
After some further research, by making one change, all blob operations 
function properly.

In Value.java, line 236 is this:

             valueObject = blob.getBytes(1, (int) blob.length());

and this is where the NPE comes from since' blob' is null.

If it's changed to this:
             valueObject = (blob != null) ? blob.getBytes(1, (int) 
blob.length()) : null;

It functions correctly in all cases.
