Subject Using blobs on firebird
Author Max Thorn
Hi everyone,

I am working on a document management program using firebird as a database engine.
My questions are :

1. Is it ok to store the docs (text files) in blobs or not ? The database could become huge in size... or should I store the docs as files and have only the path and file names in firebird database?
2. Where can I find some info regarding full text search on blob fields ? Searching the database for docs having the words I'm searching for should be fast enough...

I would appreciate any advise.
