Hi,
I need to develop a system in which the client can send a file (pdf, doc, ppt, ps, etc) to the servlet, the servlet gets the file and stores it in a database. When the client request the file, the servlet need to get the file from the database and then send it to the client. And the client use applet.
Now the question is what kind of type should I define for the file? Will Blob do the work? If so, how to do it? Thank you.
Clara

To upload your file, look into using the MultipartRequest from http://www.servlets.com/cos/index.html.
To store your file, a BLOB should be suffecient.
