We're using Splunk DB Connect 2 on top of our DB (MS SQL server and Oracle DB). In most of our tables, we've BLOB and CLOB fields that contain XML.
I would like to know how we can fetch and read the actual data from these fields?
So far this is pretty ugly, but only substrings are working for me to extract from a clob.
My system does not understand the XMLType data type. (DBX 3, Java 8 and Oracle JDBC driver for 18C)
select DBMS_LOB.substr(a.My_OBJ, 3000 , 1) as MyXML1, DBMS_LOB.substr(a.My_OBJ, 3000 , 3000) as MyXML2 from MyTableWithClob a
