>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-130
>             Project: OpenJPA
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: datacache, jdbc, jpa, kernel
>            Reporter: Patrick Linskey
>         Assigned To: Patrick Linskey
>             Fix For: 1.1.0
> BLOB and CLOB fields can only be mapped in their entirety in OpenJPA. It 
> would be nice to support fields of type java.io.InputStream (for BLOBs) and 
> java.io.Reader (for CLOBs).
> The usage pattern could look like so:
> @Entity
> public class Employee {
>     ...
>     private InputStream photoStream;
>     public void setPhotoStream(InputStream in) {
>         photoStream = in;
>     }
>     public InputStream getPhotoStream() {
>         return photoStream;
>     }
> }
> So, when the user wants to provide a stream, she will set the InputStream 
> field, and when the user wants to obtain a stream, she will use the field.
> The behavior of such an implementation would be a bit different than how 
> other fields work, in that if the user set the stream and then consumed it 
> within a single transaction, presumably no data would be written out to the 
> database at commit time. But that is the nature of streams.
> (FTR, I think that I stole this idea from an email Craig Russell sent out 
> years ago.)
