class:SerialBlob [NONE]

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable, Blob

    public class SerialBlob
    extends Object
    implements Blob, Serializable, Cloneable
    
    A serialized mapping in the Java programming language of an SQL BLOB value.

    The SerialBlob class provides a constructor for creating an instance from a Blob object. Note that the Blob object should have brought the SQL BLOB value's data over to the client before a SerialBlob object is constructed from it. The data of an SQL BLOB value can be materialized on the client as an array of bytes (using the method Blob.getBytes) or as a stream of uninterpreted bytes (using the method Blob.getBinaryStream).

    SerialBlob methods make it possible to make a copy of a SerialBlob object as an array of bytes or as a stream. They also make it possible to locate a given pattern of bytes or a Blob object within a SerialBlob object and to update or truncate a Blob object.

    Thread safety

    A SerialBlob is not safe for use by multiple concurrent threads. If a SerialBlob is to be used by more than one thread then access to the SerialBlob should be controlled by appropriate synchronization.

    1.5

constructor:<init>(byte[]) [NONE]

  • SerialBlob

    public SerialBlob​(byte[] b)
               throws SerialException,
                      SQLException
    
    Constructs a SerialBlob object that is a serialized version of the given byte array.

    The new SerialBlob object is initialized with the data from the byte array, thus allowing disconnected RowSet objects to establish serialized Blob objects without touching the data source.

    Parameters:
    b - the byte array containing the data for the Blob object to be serialized
    Throws:
    SerialException - if an error occurs during serialization
    SQLException - if a SQL errors occurs

constructor:<init>(java.sql.Blob) [NONE]

  • SerialBlob

    public SerialBlob​(Blob blob)
               throws SerialException,
                      SQLException
    
    Constructs a SerialBlob object that is a serialized version of the given Blob object.

    The new SerialBlob object is initialized with the data from the Blob object; therefore, the Blob object should have previously brought the SQL BLOB value's data over to the client from the database. Otherwise, the new SerialBlob object will contain no data.

    Parameters:
    blob - the Blob object from which this SerialBlob object is to be constructed; cannot be null.
    Throws:
    SerialException - if an error occurs during serialization
    SQLException - if the Blob passed to this to this constructor is a null.

method:getBytes(long,int) [NONE]

  • getBytes

    public byte[] getBytes​(long pos,
                           int length)
                    throws SerialException
    
    Copies the specified number of bytes, starting at the given position, from this SerialBlob object to another array of bytes.

    Note that if the given number of bytes to be copied is larger than the length of this SerialBlob object's array of bytes, the given number will be shortened to the array's length.

    Specified by:
    getBytes in interface Blob
    Parameters:
    pos - the ordinal position of the first byte in this SerialBlob object to be copied; numbering starts at 1; must not be less than 1 and must be less than or equal to the length of this SerialBlob object
    length - the number of bytes to be copied
    Returns:
    an array of bytes that is a copy of a region of this SerialBlob object, starting at the given position and containing the given number of consecutive bytes
    Throws:
    SerialException - if the given starting position is out of bounds; if free had previously been called on this object

    Parameters:
    pos - the offset to the first byte of the partial value to be retrieved. The first byte in the Blob is at position 1
    length - the length in bytes of the partial value to be retrieved
    Returns:
    InputStream through which the partial Blob value can be read.
    Throws:
    SQLException - if pos is less than 1 or if pos is greater than the number of bytes in the Blob or if pos + length is greater than the number of bytes in the Blob
    SerialException - if the free method had been previously called on this object
    Since:
    1.6

method:free() [NONE]

  • free

    public void free()
              throws SQLException
    
    This method frees the SerialBlob object and releases the resources that it holds. The object is invalid once the free method is called.

    If free is called multiple times, the subsequent calls to free are treated as a no-op.

    Specified by:
    free in interface Blob
    Throws:
    SQLException - if an error occurs releasing the Blob's resources
    Since:
    1.6

method:equals(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

  • equals

    public boolean equals​(Object obj)
    Compares this SerialBlob to the specified object. The result is true if and only if the argument is not null and is a SerialBlob object that represents the same sequence of bytes as this object.
    Overrides:
    equals in class Object
    Parameters:
    obj - The object to compare this SerialBlob against
    Returns:

method:hashCode() [NONE]

method:clone() [NONE]

  • clone

    public Object clone()
