Hi Experts,

I need to update a db2 blob field using a string that I have in memory.  I created a COM.ibm.db2.app.Blob variable and also a java.sql.Blob.  Neither have the setBytes() method that I've read could be used to do this.  Is there anything else I can use?

Thanks for your help.

Try using a PreparedStatement


ps.setBytes(1, yourString.toByteArray());

Good suggestion, but I do not want to use a ps since I'm using Hibernate.  I found that you can very easily do Hibernate.createBlob( myString.getBytes()); which is very handy!

Thanks for your suggestion!
