Geodata issue

So I am trying out Mendix and ran into an issue when connecting to an already existing Oracle database with some geodata in it and I get the following error: "Custom type mapping for 'dataSource='database:1521/name' schemaName='name' typeName='SDO_GEOMETRY'' is not specified or is invalid"   Has anyone encountered this or something similar before? My interpretation is that Mendix doesn't support SDO_GEOMETRY. Is this a known issue? Are there any good workarounds?

Correct, Mendix doesn’t support geodata datatypes. What do you want to achieve with this datatype? Common practice in Mendix is to map it to string values. I have seen many implementations of GIS and Mendix over the years, so perhaps I can steer you in the right direction.
