Oracle connector : support of SDO_GEOMETRY data types

we are not able to insert GEOMAP data to oracle DB. We opened case with IBM #TS003869041 and they informed us that SDO_GEOMETRY is not a supported Oracle data type target for DataStage and asked us to open RFE.

    Thank you for submitting this enhancement request.

    We have identified a working solution that should work in most scenarios (`except when RCP is enabled or when the user wants to use the Generate SQL option in the Connector`) and should help customer in moving ahead for the rest of the usage scenarios.

    We see that you have reported the following issue:

    The OCI function OCIStmtExecute returned status -1. Error code: 932, Error message: ORA-00932: inconsistent datatypes: expected MDSYS.SDO_GEOMETRY got CLOB.

    In order to address this and get past the current issue, you can use `SDO_UTIL` functions in your SQL statements to convert between DataStage datatype (LongVarchar) and geometry datatypes.

    For example:

    SELECT statement should be something like below:

    select sdo_util.TO_WKTGEOMETRY(CUST_GEO_LOCATION) from testgeo

    INSERT statement should be something like below:

    insert into testgeo values(sdo_util.FROM_WKTGEOMETRY(:CUST_GEO_LOCATION))

    Please let us know if that helps you moving foward.
