How do I insert an image file (or other raw data) into a database?
All raw data types (including binary documents or images) should be read and uploaded to the database as an array of bytes, byte. Originating from a binary file,
- Read all data from the file using a FileInputStream.
- Create a byte array from the read data.
- Use method setBytes(int index, byte data); of java.sql.PreparedStatement to upload the data.
