Servlet Example To Insert Mysql Clob Data

This example shows how to insert CLOB data in the database. In our example, servlet InsertClobExample takes url for the CLOB data (the url will be pointing to a text file). Therefore, we will represent the CLOB as a url.

Servlet Example To Insert Mysql Clob Data

  

This example shows how to insert CLOB data in the database. In our example, servlet InsertClobExample takes url for the CLOB data (the url will be pointing to a text file). Therefore, we will represent the CLOB as a url.

Mysql Clob 

According to the Mysql, there are four text types TINYTEXT, TEXT, MEDIUMTEXT and LONGTEXT which can be taken as CLOB type and have the maximum lengths and storage requirements. The maximum length of TINYTEXT has 255 character (8 bits), TEXT has 16,535 character (16 bits), MEDIUMTEXT has 16,777,216 character (24 bits) and LONGTEXT has 4,294,967,295 character (32 bits).

How to create Clob Data type in Mysql Table

CREATE TABLE `article` ( 
   `ID` int(11) NOT NULL, 
  `Subject` varchar(256) NOT NULL, 
  `Body` longtext, 
  PRIMARY KEY (`ID`) 
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 

The following servlet InsertClobExample shows how to insert data of CLOB type in mysql database through the servlet program. It has three variables:

  • id (the ID of file).
  • fileName (the name of file)
  • sourceURL (the url of file representing the CLOB; the servlet will open the url, construct a CLOB and insert it into the CLOB column of the article table)

Let's insert a new record with the following data in the article table:

 Mapping of servlet (InsertClobExample.java) in web.xml file:

<servlet>
  <servlet-name>InsertClobExample</servlet-name>
  <servlet-class>InsertClobExample</servlet-class>
</servlet> 
<servlet-mapping>
  <servlet-name>InsertClobExample</servlet-name>
  <url-pattern>/InsertClobExample</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

Run the servlet (InsertClobExample.java) on this url: http://localhost:8080/JavaExample/InsertClobExample.

In case of any error in the database connection then the following error message will be displayed.
