Portable applications should use the
when mapping to a database Lob type. The
annotation may be used in conjunction with the
annotation or the
ElementCollection annotation when the
element collection value is of basic type. A
be either a binary or character type.
Lob type is inferred from the type of the
persistent field or property, and except for string and
character-based types defaults to Blob.
Example 1: @Lob @Basic(fetch=LAZY) @Column(name="REPORT") protected String report; Example 2: @Lob @Basic(fetch=LAZY) @Column(name="EMP_PIC", columnDefinition="BLOB NOT NULL") protected byte pic;
