Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
Long data types are deprecated by Oracle in favor of LOB data types. Therefore, the LongDataTypeColumnSize binding property is deprecated in the BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0 version of the Oracle Database adapter.
If you use the LongDatatypeColumnSize binding property, set -1 as the value to avoid avoids memory issues.
