how to store Image as blob in Sqlite & how to retrieve it?

I want to store an image(from url) into a sqlite database.

For that I use:

db = new DataBase(getApplicationContext());
URL url = new URL("http://sree.cc/wp-content/uploads/schogini_team.png");
URLConnection ucon = url.openConnection();
InputStream is = ucon.getInputStream();
BufferedInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream(is,128);
ByteArrayBuffer barb= new ByteArrayBuffer(128);

int current = 0;
while ((current = bis.read()) != -1) {
barb.append((byte) current);
}

ContentValues filedata= new ContentValues();

filedata.put(DataBase.IMG_SRC,barb.toByteArray());

db.insert(DataBase.Table_Img, null, filedata);


In the
Insert()
:

public void insert(String tableImg, Object object,
ContentValues dataToInsert) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
String sql = "INSERT INTO "+tableImg+" ("+ID+","+IMG_SRC+") " +
"VALUES ('"+1+"','"+dataToInsert+"')";
db.execSQL(sql);
}


For the retrieval of image:

Cursor cursor = db.selectDataToShow(DataBase.Table_Img, DataBase.IMG_SRC);

byte[] imageByteArray=cursor.getBlob(cursor.getColumnIndex(DataBase.IMG_SRC));
cursor.close();

ByteArrayInputStream imageStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(imageByteArray);
Bitmap theImage = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(imageStream);

System.out.println(">>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> "+theImage);


So here I got
null
.

And in my database the value of image stored as:
Image=[B@43e5ac48]

Here the code i used for my app

This code will take a image from url and convert is to a byte array

byte[] logoImage = getLogoImage(IMAGEURL);

private byte[] getLogoImage(String url){
     try {
             URL imageUrl = new URL(url);
             URLConnection ucon = imageUrl.openConnection();

             InputStream is = ucon.getInputStream();
             BufferedInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream(is);

             ByteArrayBuffer baf = new ByteArrayBuffer(500);
             int current = 0;
             while ((current = bis.read()) != -1) {
                     baf.append((byte) current);
             }

             return baf.toByteArray();
     } catch (Exception e) {
             Log.d("ImageManager", "Error: " + e.toString());
     }
     return null;
}

To save the image to db i used this code.

    public void insertUser(){
    SQLiteDatabase db               =   dbHelper.getWritableDatabase();

    String delSql                       =   "DELETE FROM ACCOUNTS";
    SQLiteStatement delStmt         =   db.compileStatement(delSql);
    delStmt.execute();

    String sql                      =   "INSERT INTO ACCOUNTS (account_id,account_name,account_image) VALUES(?,?,?)";
    SQLiteStatement insertStmt      =   db.compileStatement(sql);
    insertStmt.clearBindings();
    insertStmt.bindString(1, Integer.toString(this.accId));
    insertStmt.bindString(2,this.accName);
    insertStmt.bindBlob(3, this.accImage);
    insertStmt.executeInsert();
    db.close();
}

To retrieve the image back this is code i used.

public Account getCurrentAccount() {
    SQLiteDatabase db       =   dbHelper.getWritableDatabase();
    String sql              =   "SELECT * FROM ACCOUNTS";
    Cursor cursor           =   db.rawQuery(sql, new String[] {});

    if(cursor.moveToFirst()){
        this.accId             = cursor.getInt(0);
        this.accName           = cursor.getString(1);
        this.accImage          = cursor.getBlob(2);
    }
    if (cursor != null && !cursor.isClosed()) {
        cursor.close();
    }
    db.close();
    if(cursor.getCount() == 0){
        return null;
    } else {
        return this;
    }
}

Finally to load this image to a imageview

logoImage.setImageBitmap(BitmapFactory.decodeByteArray( currentAccount.accImage, 
        0,currentAccount.accImage.length));
