Creating a user-defined coordinate system was done by adding a new row to the MDSYS.CS_SRS table before the 10.2 release. As of 10.2 coordinate system support is based upon the EPSG(European Petroleum Survey Group) model which is implemented using a different table structure.

For more information about this new implementation:
