When you use BizTalk WCF-OracleDB adapters to work with Oracle Server 18.104.22.168, you receive the following error message:
"The Messaging Engine failed to add a receive location "XXX" with URL "XXX" to the adapter "WCF-OracleDB." Reason: "System.NotSupportedException: Specified method is not supported."
This problem occurs because Oracle made a change between database versions 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 in the DATA_TYPE value for the XMLType data type in the metadata table. This change causes the BizTalk adapter to fail when it maps from Oracle types to .NET types.
