Want to store Object in MySQL database

I have a variable in java which return type is Object(java.lang.Object). I want to store this variable value in MySQL database without casting in any other primitive data type. Is there any data type available in MySQL related to Object?

Answer

You can use a BLOB to store the raw data, but otherwise no, MySQL does not have a datatype specifically for a java object.

As a side note: You probably shouldn’t be storing a raw object into the database, that kind of prevents you from doing any sort of queries on it.
