Storing images in db2 v5 os/390
We are now starting a new project with db2 v5 under os/390.
This project requires to store/manage images (photos).

I know that with DB2 V6 we will have the possibility to use the DB2
Extenders.

But our site has forseen V6 installation on end 2000 (late for this
project).

My question :
What are the possibilities to store images in db2 v5 os/390 ?

Thanks for your help.

Eric,
I've never had to look into this but if I did I would consider LONG
VARCHAR or LONG VARGRAPHIC.
Try searching the DB2-L archives too.
