Hello Alan. I haven't used Base to store binaries however I have monitored
this list for a while and used Base for a few small projects.

I expect the two primary recommendations you will get are...
1. Don't store data in Base, use a separate database back end because the
embedded HSQL is not very stable. To that end I've recently found the
native MySQL connector works well for me (never had reliable connections
with the Java or ODBC connectors).
2. Don't store binaries in Base, store a path/pointer to the binary. Keeps
the table size down, minimizes loss if the db becomes corrupted.
