Quantum DB - Oracle RAW type fields (New)
By: Piers Tuson (axapierstuson) - 2008-07-29 14:07
Hello again Forum.
I have come across something strange when viewing a RAW field (that does not hold encrypted or binary data) in an Oracle table. The field contents resemble encrypted or binary data when viewed using Quantum DB, but with TOAD or Eclipse SQL Explorer it just looks as it should. I am perplexed by this, is it something I should expect, or could it be an issue?
The following reply was posted by Julen Parra:
It's very likely a lack of consideration by Quantum of the RAW fields. It's probably treating them as binary. Please post a bug report and I'll try to have it considered in the next release.
I hope it is OK to post a bug report this way, I can't think how to improve on this exchange of messages.
