Darn, the idea didn't work.  Okay, here's the code we're using, with a 
bit of our framework for free. ;-)

    PreparedStatement ps = database.getPreparedStatementCache().get(
        "SELECT date, type, point, detailclass, detailparams " +
        "FROM HistoryRecord",
    ResultSet rs = ps.executeQuery();
        // Seek directly to the one we want...
        rs.absolute(i + 1);

        Date date = rs.getTimestamp("date");
        HistoryRecord.Type type = HistoryRecord.Type
        HistoryRecord.Point point = HistoryRecord.Point
        HistoryDetail detail = (HistoryDetail)

        // String detailParamString = rs.getString("detailparams");
        String detailParamString = IOUtils.readToString(

        // Now we parse the XML which was found in detailparams,
        // using the particular HistoryDetail class we just instantiated.

We noticed this problem when the XML parse started failing every time.  
On closer investigation, it was always an empty string being returned 
from the results.  It looks like it doesn't matter whether we use 
getString() or getCharacterStream(), the result is always the same... 
works with the embedded driver, but not with the client driver.

I've checked the database at the other end using the embedded driver and 
the values do show up there, so it's not corruption of the database itself.

In case it affects things, auto-commit has been turned off, and the 
table is being created like this:

    CREATE TABLE HistoryRecord (
        date TIMESTAMP NOT NULL,
        type SMALLINT NOT NULL,
        point SMALLINT NOT NULL,
        detailclass VARCHAR(256),
        detailparams CLOB(1M)

...yes, I realise we gave this no primary key... but that seems to be 
how it is.

Anyone have any ideas?  This seems to be a real stumper, but maybe I'm 
missing something obvious.
