I have a BLOB file in my mysql database. When reading, the line is a recoralt textd and the field (blob) is an Object. How do I convert an object to a file data type from the ivyscript?

You can see it at the attachmend.

Do your read the Record with the Database Step process element?

Yes the Record is the parameter. I would like to convert the object from the record into a file Type.

Object can be anything. What is the type of the Object returned by getField() at runtime? You can log that by the following code: ivy.log.info(in.Data.document.document.getField("File").getClass().toString()) If we know the type that is returned there we can find a solution to store the data to a file.

We save the file over the database process element as a blob with in.file.readBinary() Runtime log by using in.Data.document.document.getField("File").getClass().toString() give us: class ch.ivyteam.ivy.scripting.objects.Binary I tried this: File file = new File(in.data.document.document.getField("Name").toString()); file.writeBinary(in.Data.document.document.getField("File")); But I get the following error: Method writeBinary(Object) for class file of classloader org.eclipse.osgi.internal.loader.EquinoxClassLoader@44c54463[ch.ivyteam.ivy.scripting.objects:] not found.

You can do it like this:

Binary binary = in.Data.document.document.getField("File") as Binary;
File file = new File(in.Data.document.document.getField("Name").toString());

You first have to cast the Object returned from getField to a Binary using the as operator of IvyScript

thank you very much for your great support.

Cast a objekt to binary is working now. But if I download the file (tried with text and PDF files) by using DefaultStreamedContent, I am not able to open it, because there are some special characters: ¨Ìsr'ch.ivyteam.ivy.scripting.objects.Binary[bytest[Bxpur[B¨Û¯T‡xpTestHalloTest

It seems that the encoding is wrong.

Best Regards, Eugene

Hi Eugene

This seems to be more a support topic than a simple Q&A now. Can we continue this on our Support channel? To do so please send a mail to ivy@axonivy.com.
