Hi,

Regardless of whether it is a bad way, I'm interested in looking whether it is possible to store blobs/files with Hibernate OGM for MongoDB?
I heard there is a ''GridFS'' for MongoDB, but is it still possible to use this with Hibernate OGM?

Thanks!

Hi,

Yes, you can store blobs through Hibernate OGM. Just model it as a byte array and add @Lob:

Code:
@Lob
private byte[] lob;


This will be stored as a BinData field in MongoDB. But you need to be aware of the size limit for documents in MongoDB (16 MB).

Hibernate OGM does not support GridFS at this point; It might be an interesting way to store the "overflow" of large entities.

Hth,

Always appreciate it Gunnar! Thanks for the information.

I will try to work-around the problem and see how to still make use of GridFS while at the same time using Hibernate OGM. ;)

I think we we end up working on custom user Types, we need to look at this use case as well. i.e. allow people to use the GridFS API.

Actually, maybe we should offer native GridFS support via a MongoDB specific annotation. Can you open a JIRA? If you are super motivated, you can even give it a try. I don't think it would be too hard and we can guide you. Most of the work will be in one or two methods of MongoDBDialect.

I'm terribly sorry for the late reply. Native GridFS support via a MongoDB specific annotation would be great.
I will open a Jira ticket soon and see what I can do! :)

Hi,

I am new to Hibernate OGM and currently working on a prototype to store images in a mongodb database. I am keen to know if GridFS support is available in any of the OGM versions? secondly could you please direct me towards an example to store it using @lob for image sizes below 4mb

We did not implement GridFS support yet sorry.
For storing your images something as simple as this should work

Code:
@Entity
public class Asset {
    @Id String id;
    @Lob
    byte[] data;
}


you will put your image bits into the byte[]

Hi

Using byte[], what is the maximum size of image that can be handled. As byte[] array can only be initialized using a int is the max size restricted to 32Kb?

e.g.
buffer = new byte[int] --- compiles
buffer = new byte[long] -- does not compile

No it's limited to 2 147 483 647 (2GB). 32k would be a short. But that's an interesting point I've never considered.

An alternative is to have a custom type to represent extremely long stream of bytes but we don't support custom types yet in Hibernate OGM.
A hacky solution is to represent your big long stream of byts as a Java Serializable object which we would convert to a stream of byte but I don't like this approach.
