  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The SQL Query action returns empty values for Oracle XMLTYPE
    data.
    The same query returns correct data in Oracle SQL Developer.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a table with a BLOB column called BLOBXML.
    2. Load in an XML file to the BLOB cell.
    3. Use the query: SELECT XMLTYPE(BLOBXML,1) AS BLOBXML FROM
    <table>
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    Empty cells for the XMLTYPE values.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    XML text is retrieved.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    It might be possible to cast the data to another data type such
    as VARCHAR2 but long content will be truncated.
