Last updated on JUNE 16, 2022

Oracle Data Integrator - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The error below occurs when trying to unload an Oracle table containing CLOB data to a file using IKM SQL To File Append:

7000 : null : com.sunopsis.jdbc.driver.file.d.i com.sunopsis.jdbc.driver.file.d.i
at com.sunopsis.jdbc.driver.file.d.d.setCharacterStream(
at com.sunopsis.sql.SnpsQuery.updateExecStatement(
at com.sunopsis.sql.SnpsQuery.addBatch(

The above error can be reproduced with this test case on ODI or even later version of ODI for example ODI

On Oracle:

1. create table <SOURCE_SCHEMA>.clobdatatbl (clobcol1 CLOB)

2. SQL> insert into <SOURCE_SCHEMA>.clobdatatbl values('AZERTY QWERTY');

1 row created.

SQL> commit
2 ;

Commit complete.


3. Reverse Engineer the above Oracle table clobdatatbl in.

4. Duplicate clobdatatbl Datastore and drag the Duplicate under a File Model

5. Edit the Duplicate, under Files tab, File Format: Fixed, Heading: 1,
Record Separator MS-DOS
Columns tab, the column automatically become String with Physical and Logical
length both 4000


The physical and logical length of this column better be defiend according to the length of the source column data, for example it can be 35967.

Otherwise, java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: ODI-40406: Bytes are too big for array error occurs when the File Datastore column size is not defined long enough.

Please see <Note 554792.1> for details.

6. Import in IKM SQL to File Append

7. Create an Interface
Source: clobdatatbl from the Oracle Model
Target: duplicate of clobdatatbl from the File Model
Staging area set on Source Oracle
Mapping, CLOBCOL1 to CLOBCOL1 executed on source
Flow tab: no LKM needed only IKM SQL to File Append
set all 3 options to Yes Insert, Truncate, Generate_Header

8. Run the Interface, only 3 steps Truncate Target file, insert
column/header, Insert new rows will appear in Operator.

Insert new rows fails with:

7000 : null : com.sunopsis.jdbc.driver.file.c.i
at com.sunopsis.jdbc.driver.file.c.d.setCharacterStream(
at com.sunopsis.sql.SnpsQuery.updateExecStatement(
