AFAIK, There isn't such a package or procedure in Oracle up to Oracle9i release.

But This does NOT mean that you cannot accomplish such a task.

Using java is certainly an good option. For example, Oreilly's classic file upload servlets can do that.

as for the file attachment storage in the oracle database, you have two options:

1. you can store the file contents in the LOB field.
2. you can also store the file as the OS file on the machine where Oracle server is running.

"seazodiac" Thanks for the reply.
However, in Oracle Applications there is a "paperclip" you can click on to attach a file. I was just hoping to find out what the exact procedure or how indeed Oracle accomplishes this. And where does it store the actual file.(probably in a Blob...as you mentioned)

once again, this is not done by Procedure but most likely Java application.
For where the files are stored, you can check the database structure yourself, can't you?
