Deprecated LONG RAW data type is still used in wl_servlet_sessions table for JDBC-based persistence storage

(Doc ID 1675581.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.1.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In Oracle documentation for Weblogic Server 12c (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24329_01/web.1211/e21049/sessions.htm#BABEEDBG) the table wl_servlet_sessions is still using LONG RAW as a data type.

According to Oracle Database documentation - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/server.111/b28318/datatype.htm#CNCPT613

the LONG RAW data type is provided for backward compatibility with existing applications. For new applications, use the BLOB and BFILE data types for large amounts of binary data.
