I had a problem the other day where I had a Oracle raw field (equates to VARBINARY) that had it's value set as NULL. However when returning the field sqlunit was converting it to md5 and required the test value to be md5 value as well. Other further inspection of the sqlunit code I noticed that all strings for VARBINARY are converted to md5. Why is that the case or is there something about VARBINARY that I dont understand.


PS My apologies if you see a similar post to this as I thought I posted such a thing on sourceforge but cannot see any evidence of it.
