Hello All,
In my application i am serializing few objects to byte array and byte array to strings and storing it to the database.

Now to optimize the same things i want to store the byte array to the database, so i want to use SQL VarBinary data type and need to store and retrieve it from the database.

Though i am not aware of the VarBinary data type wants to make sure its limitations, so that in future i do not need to suffer and need to revert back all my code and database changes to storing as a string ..

Please suggest me the right way to achieve the same .. also let me know any better way available other than this

Yog .. :)

Hi Kschuler,
Thanks for the reply, i have already gone through google and searched some stuffs with VarBinary .. but not able to take a call that should i go for it or not ... as not aware its technical limitations in long run .. cause the application which i am working on .. serializations is core part of it ..

Which technical limitations are you needing information on?
