Q

How to store a picture or graphic in Oracle database

I am a postgraduate student doing some reasearch on the Oracle DBMS. I would like to know how I can store a picture

or graphic (BLOB) in my database using Oracle.

The answer all depends on your development platform. Different programming languages accomplish this task in different manners. After all, variable declaration is not the same in different programming languages, so why should storing BLOBs be the same?

About the best I can do is to refer you to the Oracle documentation. Examine the document below:

http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14117_01/appdev.101/b10796/toc.htm

In this docuent, you will see step-by-step examples in PL/SQL, C with Oracle's OCI, C++, Cobol, Visual Basic, and Java.
