Bug: Unable to select or edit geodatabase annotation stored as Long Raw in an ArcSDE for Oracle geodatabase


Attempting to select or edit an annotation class stored in ArcSDE for Oracle with the element attribute as Long Raw returns one of the following errors:

"ArcSDE load buffer error (-139)".

"Out of server memory".

The error message encountered is dependent on the ArcSDE application server platform, Windows or UNIX.


Internal ArcSDE cursors working with Long Raw attributes are encountering Oracle errors during the binding and execution of the held cursor.


The best workaround is to convert the annotation classes element attribute from Oracle's Long Raw to BLOB. See the ESRI White paper "Converting from LONG RAW to BLOB in an ArcSDE for Oracle Geodatabase" in the Related Information section of this article for instructions.
