Java – Trying to read a BLOB as an InputStream but getting Connection Closed error. Spring3 getJdbcTemplate()

javajdbcspringspring-3

I'm moving an application to use the Spring3 framework and I have code that reads a BLOB column from an Oracle Database:

This works:

        String fileSqlStr =
                "select file_id, file_content from cpm_file where file_id = 4";
        PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement(fileSqlStr);
        ResultSet rs = ps.executeQuery();
        rs.next();
        int fileId = rs.getInt("file_id");
        InputStream fis = rs.getBinaryStream("file_content");
        ExlBOMImporter ei = new ExlBOMImporter(fis);

But when I try writing it with Spring using the JdbcTemplate bean:

 InputStream is = getJdbcTemplate().query(getFileContentSql, new RowMapper<InputStream>() {

                public InputStream mapRow(ResultSet rs, int rowNum) throws SQLException {
                    OracleLobHandler lobHandler = new OracleLobHandler();
                    return lobHandler.getBlobAsBinaryStream(rs, "file_content");
                }
            }, fileId).get(0);
 ExlImporter importer = new ExlBOMImporter(is);
 importer.process();

I'm getting an java.io.IOException: Closed Connection Exception.

I'm thinking that Spring must be closing the connection for the InputStream before I get around to process it. Would you guys have a better way of writing this?

Edit: Some more depth to the Exception:

Best Solution

Yes, Spring will tidy up the connection when it leaves the query method.

Easiest solution is to perform your processing inside the RowMapper, e.g.

getJdbcTemplate().query(getFileContentSql, new RowMapper<Void>() {
    public void mapRow(ResultSet rs, int rowNum) throws SQLException {
        OracleLobHandler lobHandler = new OracleLobHandler();
        InputStream inputStream = lobHandler.getBlobAsBinaryStream(rs, "file_content");
        ExlImporter importer = new ExlBOMImporter(inputStream);
        importer.process();
    }
}, fileId);

If you only want to handle the first row, then use a ResultSetExtractor instead of a RowMapper.
