Hibernate 4.x – Inserting Clob as String to database (Oracle – MySql)

I recently upgraded from Hibernate 3.x to 4.x, I used this article as a reference.

I am facing a problem when inserting Clob data as a String to the database, my application runs on (Oracle – MySql – MSSQL) databases. This is my hibernate domain:

@Lob
@Column(name = "LargeText" )
public String getLargeText() {
    return largeText;
}

public void setLargeText(String largeText) {
    this.largeText = largeText;
}

When I try to insert the object to the database, this exception is being thrown:

What can I do to solve this issue?

Answer

This exception has various paths to solve it. This exception may occurs due to version to Tomcat server used along with mysql-connector-java version and also which dpcp implementation (commons.dbcp or tomcat-dbcp) is used and it’s version of course.

According to discussion in chat OA @Shahe is using Tomcat 7 along with mysql-connector-java version 5.1.35 which is latest one but @Shahe is using commons.dpcp with version 1.2.2 which was the problem.

So updating the version of commons-dpcp to 1.4 or latest will solve the issue.
