RE: write blob to file

I ended up switching to using a java procedure to write the blob to the file system. Works super fast. 1000 files in 50 seconds.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I have 400,000 files to write!

Subject: write blob to file
We have pdf's stored in our database as blob as a secure file which is encrypted and we want to write these blobs out to the file system. I have written this procedure below but it is very slow. The files range from about 90kb to 500kb. I did a test with 10 files and it writes the first two files instantly which happened to be the biggest files 440kb and 180kb but then starts to slow down for each of the next files (which are all around 90kb) and by the time it gets to the 10 file it is crawling. It took about 10 minutes to all 10 files. Am I doing something wrong in this procedure? Is there a better way? Thanks
