With JDBC, trying to set an XMLType column to NULL using:
pstmt.setNull(19, oracle.jdbc.OracleTypes.OPAQUE, "SYS.XMLTYPE")

fails with:
Invalid column type: 1111.

Trying to use :
stmt.setNull(16, OracleTypes.OPAQUE)

gives a different error:
java.sql.SQLException: Invalid column type: sqlType=2007
