Where are BLOBs useful?
Posted by: Scotty Miller ()

I am posing this question under the perception that the practice of storing files within a database as BLOBs is not considered good practice. What purpose does BLOBs serve if files should not be stored in a database, and when would you ever need to use BLOBs? Are there any definitive cases where a BLOB should most definitely be used?
