Method And System For Streaming Binary Large Object (BLOB) Data

Disclosed is a method and system for streaming Binary Large Object (BLOB) data.

While streaming Binary Large Object (BLOB) data,

may be encountered. Examples of errors include transmission error, retrieval errors, printing errors, faxing errors and data corruption. The errors are generally corrected manually by a client subsequent to the processing the BLOB data.

The method and system disclosed herein uses multiple background processes for efficient streaming of BLOB data in different formats. The background processes may be run as daemon processes. The BLOB data may be an image or text. The method and system initially detects the format of the BLOB data. Examples of a format includes, but are not limited to, Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) format, JPEG File Interchange Format (JFIF), Portable Document Format (PDF) and any Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) based formats. Thereafter, based on the format of the BLOB data, the method and system checks the BLOB data for any transmission errors. The transmission errors are accordingly rectified and the stream of BLOB data is checked for the presence of scan lines. Scan lines are distorted lines that appear on the BLOB data during streaming. Subsequently, any corruption in the BLOB data is rectified.

It may be required to convert the format of the BLOB data to a format compatible with a viewer used by th...
