FAQ: Can LONG RAW be used for attribute storage on a feature class of ESRI Spatial Type in Oracle?

Question

Can LONG RAW be used for attribute storage on a feature class of ESRI Spatial Type in Oracle?

Answer

No, a feature class using the ESRI Spatial Type geometry storage, cannot support binary attributes of type LONG RAW.

In the DBTUNE, for the ST_GEOMETRY, the ATTRIBUTE_BINARY parameter is explicitly set to BLOB. This is to ensure all binary attributes use the storage type BLOB. If a different DBTUNE keyword is used for storage parameters of a ESRI Spatial Type feature class, verify that the ATTRIBUTE_BINARY parameter is set to BLOB:

Code:
ATTRIBUTE_BINARY "BLOB"
