The USING request modifier supports passing LOBs to the Vantage platform. The documentation for each Vantage-supported API specifies how this functionality is presented to the application.

You can specify three different modes for handling large objects by the USING request modifier:
  • Inline
  • Deferred
  • Locator

Deferred and locator modes defer the transfer of data between client and server, transmitting non-LOB data separately from LOB data. The appropriate deferred mode depends on the application. Neither deferred or locator mode passes the entire LOB field with the non-LOB data from a row.
