Yes, I understand that you need to be cautious.
I would like to hear more about your issues.
You can contact me on my email haris at sl-king.com. I suppose it is too
much for this list

Thanks Haris,

  I am still in the planning stage. Not wanting to rush into any more
problems I can't get out of easily. I had pretty much hung my hat on
oracle sdo when I discovered that the esri implementation doesn't really
support all metadata categories. So now the sde-fdo seems to be a
cleaner easier solution. And as of yet I haven't found anyone who can
convince me that esri will fix the inadequacies. (9.2 maybe not.) So
even though we are talking about oracle sdo spatial data, I
really have an esri version of that. It does not contain the wkt (SRID)
value, the min, max bounding values or the tolerance. These values
cannot just be inserted because then sde loses object control of the

Probably more ranting than you want to hear. If you have further
interest let me know I can fill your ear.


When these values are present in dbtune file the entities are created as
sdo objects that have correct metadata. But if you do arcgis doesn't
respond as expected.

One option for displaying SDO_GEOMETRY from Oracle 10.2 ( and others) is
to use King.Oracle provider.

It is not yet under fdooracle subproject but binaries you can get here

As there is no discussion or mailing list for the arcsde fdo provider,
and the oracle fdo only has the commits list available... I would like
to ask a question here.


Q I am running Oracle database. Using oracle sdo_geometry as my
sde (10g) datatype. It would seem at first glance that I have several
options for display in mapguide server. However I notice that the arcsde
fdo specifically states Of my two oracle installations neither
has that specific version ( and Will this restriction
be rectified? Oracle version jumping is not a walk in the park, and I
wouldn't consider it in the hopes that it might work and there might be
a new version next month that would support only one more version jump.


Not that I want to reconsider but can someone enlighten me on the many
options. What the pros and cons of each are and what an industry trend
may be in the near future?








BTW there is an sde 9.1 for 10g
