Objects can be accessed through different methods. These methods indicate how the object is retrieved and how it is stored within the database. Different access methods are necessary for different types of objects. For example, the standard installation of Aptify is delivered with three object access methods already defined. These are:
- DBChunks: Objects are stored in chunks within the database using the Database Chunking method. This object access method is currently not supported at this time.
- HTTP: The object is retrieved using hypertext transfer protocol. This object access method is currently not supported at this time.
- DBBlob: The object is stored in the database as a BLOB (Binary Large Object).
