Interface LobCreator

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultLobHandler.DefaultLobCreator, OracleLobHandler.OracleLobCreator

public interface LobCreator

Interface that abstracts potentially database-specific creation of large binary fields and large text fields. Does not work with java.sql.Blob and java.sql.Clob instances in the API, as some JDBC drivers do not support these types as such.

The LOB creation part is where LobHandler implementations usually differ. Possible strategies include usage of PreparedStatement.setBinaryStream/setCharacterStream but also PreparedStatement.setBlob/setClob with either a stream argument (requires JDBC 4.0) or java.sql.Blob/Clob wrapper objects.

A LobCreator represents a session for creating BLOBs: It is not thread-safe and needs to be instantiated for each statement execution or for each transaction. Each LobCreator needs to be closed after completion.

For convenient working with a PreparedStatement and a LobCreator, consider using JdbcTemplate with an AbstractLobCreatingPreparedStatementCallback implementation. See the latter's javadoc for details.

Method Detail

setBlobAsBytes

void setBlobAsBytes(java.sql.PreparedStatement ps,
                    int paramIndex,
                    byte[] content)
                    throws java.sql.SQLException
Set the given content as bytes on the given statement, using the given parameter index. Might simply invoke PreparedStatement.setBytes or create a Blob instance for it, depending on the database and driver.

Parameters:
ps - the PreparedStatement to the set the content on
paramIndex - the parameter index to use
content - the content as byte array, or null for SQL NULL
Throws:
java.sql.SQLException - if thrown by JDBC methods
See Also:
PreparedStatement.setBytes(int, byte[])

setBlobAsBinaryStream

void setBlobAsBinaryStream(java.sql.PreparedStatement ps,
                           int paramIndex,
                           java.io.InputStream contentStream,
                           int contentLength)
                           throws java.sql.SQLException
Set the given content as binary stream on the given statement, using the given parameter index. Might simply invoke PreparedStatement.setBinaryStream or create a Blob instance for it, depending on the database and driver.

Parameters:
ps - the PreparedStatement to the set the content on
paramIndex - the parameter index to use
contentStream - the content as binary stream, or null for SQL NULL
Throws:
java.sql.SQLException - if thrown by JDBC methods
See Also:
PreparedStatement.setBinaryStream(int, java.io.InputStream, int)

setClobAsString

void setClobAsString(java.sql.PreparedStatement ps,
                     int paramIndex,
                     java.lang.String content)
                     throws java.sql.SQLException
Set the given content as String on the given statement, using the given parameter index. Might simply invoke PreparedStatement.setString or create a Clob instance for it, depending on the database and driver.

Parameters:
ps - the PreparedStatement to the set the content on
paramIndex - the parameter index to use
content - the content as String, or null for SQL NULL
Throws:
java.sql.SQLException - if thrown by JDBC methods
See Also:
PreparedStatement.setBytes(int, byte[])

setClobAsAsciiStream

void setClobAsAsciiStream(java.sql.PreparedStatement ps,
                          int paramIndex,
                          java.io.InputStream asciiStream,
                          int contentLength)
                          throws java.sql.SQLException
Set the given content as ASCII stream on the given statement, using the given parameter index. Might simply invoke PreparedStatement.setAsciiStream or create a Clob instance for it, depending on the database and driver.

Parameters:
ps - the PreparedStatement to the set the content on
paramIndex - the parameter index to use
asciiStream - the content as ASCII stream, or null for SQL NULL
Throws:
java.sql.SQLException - if thrown by JDBC methods

PreparedStatement.setAsciiStream(int, java.io.InputStream, int)

setClobAsCharacterStream

void setClobAsCharacterStream(java.sql.PreparedStatement ps,
                              int paramIndex,
                              java.io.Reader characterStream,
                              int contentLength)
                              throws java.sql.SQLException
Set the given content as character stream on the given statement, using the given parameter index. Might simply invoke PreparedStatement.setCharacterStream or create a Clob instance for it, depending on the database and driver.

close

void close()
Close this LobCreator session and free its temporarily created BLOBs and CLOBs. Will not need to do anything if using PreparedStatement's standard methods, but might be necessary to free database resources if using proprietary means.

NOTE: Needs to be invoked after the involved PreparedStatements have been executed or the affected O/R mapping sessions have been flushed. Otherwise, the database resources for the temporary BLOBs might stay allocated.
