It is possible to method for saving opencv objects to database (like oracle, mysql a.s.o) rather than xml file ?

CvSave is sort of a blackbox.

Thx

Your question is a great one. Saving to XML requires a lot more space on disc and loads reduced. I'd the issue myself and authored a brief code which saves Pad to disc, You alter it in order to save other objects.

// Save matrix to binary file
int saveMat( const string& filename, const Mat& M){
    if (M.empty()){
       return 0;
    }
    ofstream out(filename.c_str(), ios::out|ios::binary);
    if (!out)
       return 0;

    int cols = M.cols;
    int rows = M.rows;
    int chan = M.channels();
    int eSiz = (M.dataend-M.datastart)/(cols*rows*chan);

    // Write header
    out.write((char*)&cols,sizeof(cols));
    out.write((char*)&rows,sizeof(rows));
    out.write((char*)&chan,sizeof(chan));
    out.write((char*)&eSiz,sizeof(eSiz));

    // Write data.
    if (M.isContinuous()){
       out.write((char *)M.data,cols*rows*chan*eSiz);
    }
    else{
       return 0;
    }
    out.close();
    return 1;
}
