    Hi Suhale,

    I think Praveen Gujjeti's blog is self-explanatory. I've used its java developing and works fine. You should take into account that you need a DB table with a BLOB field. Later you (or your DB team) need to do a Store Procedure in the DB which takes at least BLOB parameter and the primary key fields (recommendable the rest of the fields as well) to insert/update the record with the field BLOB. Later you can develop your PI scenario using the java mapping developed by Praveen. With Oracle i haven't had any problem.

    If your scenario is file - jdbc, you can move the files in the sender adapter to a temporary folder and to use the Praveen's code pointing the path in the FileInputStream(args[0]) declaration(ie FileInputStream("/usr/sap/myfiledata/temp").

    Also you can avoid to deal directly with the file system and try to pass the file as attachment in mapping time, but this way is more complicated.
