SDO_VERSION Returns Null Instead of Version Number Leading To Problems Using Mapinfo (Doc ID 944854.1)
Last updated on MAY 27, 2010
Oracle Spatial - Version: 10.2.0.1 to 220.127.116.11.0 - Release: 10.2 to Information in this document applies to any platform.
SDO_VERSION returns NULL in customer database which was a showstopper. The reason is that their GIS tool (Mapinfo) checks SDO_VERSION to find out if spatial queries are available, and if not starts using full table scan queries (= does not submit any spatial queries).
