Hi all,
Say we have a table T_DOC :
DESC T_DOC;

id_doc   number(10)
image    BLOB


How can we ensure that we have only one row that contains one unique image.

I've tried to create a unique index on that field but indexes can't be build on BLOB fields.

Aby idea ?

Thank you

Not possible with basic options, maybe with intermedia one, if you have money to buy it.
I move this topic to this forum.

OK, thanks for the feedback.

If someone knows an answer with Oracle internal features, feel free to post it here.

It depends on what releases we are working on.
Through Oracle 9i, it's not possible to calculate a hash through DBMS_OBFUSCATION package.
And I think there's a lot of bugs in PLSQL packages that uses Java Stored Procedure.
For example, I had to use Java another time to retrieve BLOB objects as OS files. The UTL_FILE.put_raw function has a bug that adds a newline at the end of each BLOB line.
