  2. File/Binary Data type within Realm Database

    Example:

    A new type could be defined, such as RealmFile. A RealmObject could have a RealmFile field or even a RealmList<RealmFile> field. Just like all other RealmObjects, this would simply be a proxy and wouldn't contain the actual file/binary data. To access or update the data in the RealmFile you would get an InputStream or OutputStream. Realm handles the rest in terms of syncing, caching, linking, etc. I know that Realm itself isn't really designed for arbitrarily large files, so the data contained in a RealmFile wouldn't necessarily need to be put into Realm. But it would be managed and…
