I don't understand why.... I can't seems to update blob field type. Is there a special type of update for blob type? I will get the value from the form, typecast it to string then update the db. All fields can be updated except the blob type field....

how are you trying to update it?

Are you inserting it back as binary?

if you have it as a string update it passing stringvarname.getBytes() as the value.

Here is the example of insert BLOB object into oracle db

public void insertFile(Connection conn ,int idocId, byte[] bydata1) {
  try {
    Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");
    conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:oracle:thin:@XXXserver:1521:database", "scott", "tiger");

    conn.setAutoCommit(false);
    stmt = conn.createStatement();
    stmt.execute("INSERT into " + SDocData +" values ('"              + idocId + "', EMPTY_BLOB()) ");
    rs = stmt.executeQuery("select * from "+ SDocData + "where doc_id = '" + idocId + "' for update of file_data");

    while(rs.next()) {
      blob = (oracle.sql.BLOB)rs.getObject(2);
    }

    System.out.println(" Blob length before insert " + blob.length());
    java.io.OutputStream os = ((oracle.sql.BLOB)blob).getBinaryOutputStream();

    os.write(bydata1);
    os.flush();
    os.close();

    System.out.println("Blob length in the database " + blob.length());
    OraclePreparedStatement ops =(OraclePreparedStatement)conn.prepareStatement ("update Doc_Data set file_data=? where  " +" doc_id = '" + idocId + "'");
    ops.setBLOB(1, blob);
    ops.execute();
  } catch (IOException e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
  }
}
