'Declaration
Public Shared ReadOnly Null As OracleBFile

Null can be useful when you want to perform a comparison operation on an OracleBFile to determine nullability.

Any attempt to perform a read operation on a Null object succeeds, but does not return any data. Any attempt to perform a write operation on a Null object generates an exception. Selecting a BFILE column that contains a null value returns Null.
