HOW to display BLOB (.pdf files)

HI ,

I am having a problem with displaying pdf files which stored in the oracle database as BLOBs
i have a table which has a blob column and i save all .pdf , .doc , .xml , .txt files as BLOBs. and i use oracle text to do the content searching and display the results in a web browser. When some one insert a query(to search keyword) , it will search the blob column and display matching documents. when someone click one document i want to display the document.

my idea was when the ,first when some one insert a query ,it will starts a searching and return the document id's, and document names first and when some one select a specific document using document id get the related document. (that is if some one click a .pdf file i want to display the pdf file in the browser.)

i am using JSP and servlet for web client.

can some pls tell me how to  get pdf file out of blob object and diplay it in the browser.

thanx.

HI

angel thanx for ur reply.

but in that site they have shown how to insert pdf file in to BLOB in the database. I have already done that part. The question is displaying it. because i first display the search result based on the keyword (or searching query) and then display the relevant .pdf or .doc after clicking one of those results.

regards.

Yes, the question is about how to store it, but there is also some code to display it:

// Now query the uploaded BLOB and display it
  $query = 'SELECT BLOBDATA FROM BTAB WHERE BLOBID = '.MYBLOBID;
