Hi all,

Am trying a sample application in java using Spring framework. The task
is to store am image into Database a byte array. For this am declaring the image field type as BLOB (in Oracle).

And in the java am executing following code to convert image to byte array.

File file = new File(path);
	        byte[] bFile = new byte[(int) file.length()];
	        try {
	        	FileInputStream fis=new FileInputStream(path);
	    		bFile = new byte[fis.available()+1];
	        } catch (Exception e) {

where "path" is the path to the image.

But when I try to see the data in the table am getting an error saying:

ORA-00932: inconsistent datatypes: expected NUMBER got BLOB

Can you provide any suggestion or solution to solve this issue?

Solution 1

your database expects a number (int-value) and you are delivering a blob.

Prepare your DB to be able to store a blob. The rest is fine.[^]
