I have a table with a number of file. These files range from jpg and tif files to Autocad .dwg files with adobe pdf files too. I am trying to see if I can do the thumbnail creation with Oracle Multimedia.
The documentation seems to show all the files are supported except the dwg style file. Does anyone know of a routine to take a dwg file and manipulate it in such a way to allow Oracle Multimedia to create a thumbnail image and store it in the table?
Once you identify the routines, say in Java, you could extend the Oracle Multimedia ORDImage data type to use those routines for formats that are not natively supported. An example of extending the data type is in Chapter 7 (section 7.3) of the Oracle Multimedia User's Guide (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/appdev.112/e10777/ch_extend.htm#i607611), and you will have to add your routine in the body of the type definition.
