Extended Datatype Support (EDS) is the ability for SQL Apply to extend support for additional datatypes that are not natively supported yet by SQL Apply.  EDS relies on a new capability in Oracle Database 10g Release 2 Patch Set 3 ( and Oracle Database 11g Release 1 Patch Set 1 ( that allows triggers to fire on the logical standby database.  Use the explanation and examples below as a guide to add extended support to your logical standby database for datatypes not natively supported.

EDS is also available for Streams to handle datatypes not natively supported.  For additional information, see the Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) technical brief Extended Datatype Support on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).
