Converting nvarchar(max) data type to string in Java


I am executing following sql query on SQL Server 2008 using jTDS API:

SELECT a , b , c FROM [db].[dbo].[table] where d = 1;

And data type for these three fields are as follows:

a -- nvarchar(255) b -- nvarchar(255) c -- nvarchar(max)

When I execute query using Java, the string values for a and b are plain text, but for c I am getting following value:


It seems it is stored as object, how can I convert it to normal string ?


Tried the Link Sent by @Roberto Navaron , It worked, just passed object to this method, type cast it to clob and it returns string

private String clobToString(Clob data) { StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(); try { Reader reader = data.getCharacterStream(); BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(reader); String line; while(null != (line = br.readLine())) { sb.append(line); } br.close(); } catch (SQLException e) { // handle this exception } catch (IOException e) { // handle this exception } return sb.toString(); }


Or we can use this -

<ul><li>String getNString(int columnIndex) </li> <li>String getNString(String columnLabel)</li> </ul>
