How to Create a Node with Text Greater Than 32k Using Dbms_xmldom.Createtextnode (Doc ID 294102.1)

Last updated on APRIL 29, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle XML Developers Kit - Version 9.2.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 You are trying to use DBMS_XMLDOM.createTextNode( doc DOMDocument,
data IN VARCHAR2) and want to pass CLOB (>32k) to the function as data. With
CLOB less than 32k, You can convert CLOB to varchar2 using DBMS_LOB.Read but with
CLOB greater than 32k it won't work. We might do that in chunks but we still be
limited to the 32k length for passing the parameter to the function.
