Microsoft Azure Blob Storage

Postby rafig » Fri Feb 24, 2017 1:51 pm

Hi
I have a client that requires me to use Azure Blob Storage for all 'media' data types, so instead of having a 'media' column in a table to hold something like a photo or a file scan, I have to put the 'blob' into Azure Blob Storage.
I can't find a JDBC driver for this, as it is not a proper SQL backend database.
There does appear to be a way to do it using JSON

but I was just wondering if anyone here had already done this and if so how?? (to save me reinventing the wheel)
Thanks

The link you reference is for moving media from a browser client directly to Azure. If you're in Servoy Web Client this is going to get messy in a hurry. If you're in ngClient I would implement one of the many Angular1 wrapper services out there (example: https://github.com/kinstephen/angular-azure-blob-upload). Smart client this route is out of the question.

For all of the clients, an alternate approach would be to upload blobs first to Servoy server with the usual Servoy functionalities and then using the http plugin on the server to get/post/update blobs to Azure. Finally, wrap your Azure code in headless client plugin code so these tasks are done async/non-blocking.
