 * Hibernate UserType implementation for Strings that get mapped to BLOBs.
 * Retrieves the LobHandler to use from LocalSessionFactoryBean at config time.
 * <p>This is intended for the (arguably unnatural, but still common) case
 * where character data is stored in a binary LOB. This requires encoding
 * and decoding the characters within this UserType; see the javadoc of the
 * <code>getCharacterEncoding() method.
 * <p>Can also be defined in generic Hibernate mappings, as DefaultLobCreator will
 * work with most JDBC-compliant database drivers. In this case, the field type
 * does not have to be BLOB: For databases like MySQL and MS SQL Server, any
 * large enough binary type will work.
