I'm trying to read ms word documents stored in my dataBase in a BLOB column.
However, concerning the encodings there are issues with characters. My web application can read the ms word documents the to an iframe with POIFSFileSystem without problems.
File docFile = null;
WordExtractor docExtractor = null ;
WordExtractor exprExtractor = null ;
docFile = new File("c:\File.doc");
FileInputStream fis=new FileInputStream(docFile.getAbsolutePath());
HWPFDocument doc=new HWPFDocument(fis);
docExtractor = new WordExtractor(doc);
However, I have to read it from a file in my system. My goal is to do the same, but reading the document directly from MySQL database.
Is it possible to create a FileInputStream directly from MySQL?
Thanks in advance
