Hi Daniel,

Can you post the way you are retrieving the CLOBs from the ResultSet.  I 
have used the rs.getAsciiStream() and rs.getCharacterStream()
methods for getting CLOBs in the past (with the Client driver) and it 
seemed to work just fine.

Example: Getting the AsciiStream from the clob column and writing it to 
a file

            InputStream is = rs.getAsciiStream(2);
            BufferedInputStream bs=new BufferedInputStream(is);
            FileOutputStream fo=new FileOutputStream("asciiClob"+i+".txt");
            byte[] b=new byte[128];
            while ((bs.read(b))>0){
