datatype class %xsd.hexBinary extends %Library.Binary


This data type is used to represent binary data that will be encoded using the hex encoding for XML serialization. Internally, this is stored as a string containing a binary value.

When a %Binary data type value is projected to a client application, such as when it is used in a Java, Visual Basic (ActiveX), ODBC, or JDBC application, the Object Server performs no translations or conversions on it. That is, the actual binary data is sent to and from the client without any Unicode (or other) translations.
