Right now I use Oracles XDK to query the database and return an XML string.  The XML contains an element which is an image(comes from a Blob).  The data is in Hex format.  Is there a way to take a HEX string and convert it back to a JPEG?  I have tried converting the HEX to binary but its too big and will take too long.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

byte[] imageBytes = new BigInteger(hexString).toByteArray();
// Create an image with the array

// you can load it as an image using:

Image image = ImageIO.read(new ByteArrayInputStream(new BigInteger(hexString, 16).toByteArray()));

// or save it directly to a file using:

OutputStream out = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream("image.jpg"));
out.write(new BigInteger(hexString, 16).toByteArray());
out.close();
