Annotation Type Lob

public @interface Lob

Specifies that a persistent property or field should be persisted as a large object to a database-supported large object type. The Lob annotation may be used in conjunction with the Basic annotation. A Lob may be either a binary or character type.

The Lob type is inferred from the type of the persistent field or property, and except for string and character-based types defaults to Blob.


   @Lob @Basic(fetch=LAZY)
   protected String report;
