FIX: Error when you use a WCF-OracleDB adapter to work with Oracle Server in BizTalk Server

S’applique à : BizTalk Server 2013 R2 BranchBizTalk Server 2013 R2 DeveloperBizTalk Server 2013 R2 Enterprise


When you use BizTalk WCF-OracleDB adapters to work with Oracle Server, 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 and 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.

The fix that resolves this issue is included in Cumulative update package 2 for BizTalk Adapter Pack 2013 .
