I am reading is a large string value. It's data type in Oracle is CLOB. I was originally casting it to vARCHAR2(4000) in the select statement, but just realized the data can be larger than 4000. I took out the cast and have tried changing to several data types, but they all error out. How can I read in string data greater than 4000 characters?
You must use Java to do this, the Execute Script operation makes it simple. I have put together a little process to demonstrate, and I can paste the Java from the Execute Script step below.
It's all in the data-typing. In the sample I built, the BigString and NewBigString process variables are of LiveCycle type "string" with unlimited size. These become CLOBs in the database. When read as a CLOB object using JDBC, converted to Java Strings, they then can be loaded into the LiveCycle Process data and the API handles the rest.
Let me know if I'm not clear enough with my explanation.
