Confusion on LONG data type support from SQLDBC

39 Views

Hi All,

Like we know MaxDB 7.6.3 onwards is not going to support CLOB/BLOB and we have to use data types LONG BYTE/LON ASCII etc.

What confuses me though is the content of SQLDBC_C.h file present with the community edition of MaxDB 7.6.3, mainly functions like:

SQLDBC_DLLEXPORT SQLDBC_Retcode SQLDBC_LOB_close(SQLDBC_LOB* hdl);

SQLDBC_DLLEXPORT SQLDBC_Retcode SQLDBC_LOB_putData(SQLDBC_LOB* hdl, void *paramAddr, SQLDBC_Length *paramLengthIndicator);

SQLDBC_DLLEXPORT void SQLDBC_LOB_delete_SQLDBC_LOB(SQLDBC_LOB *lob);

etc.....

Are these functions present to support LONG types ?? Also one more thing i would highly appreciate is, if someone can point me to some example programs which handle the LONG data types.

A working program with things like insert and select and data reading for the LONG would definitely help to clear most of the doubts in my mind.
