Ticket #2882 (new defect)
WideString not support by ArcSDE driver
|Reported by:||andersmoe||Owned by:||hobu|
|Severity:||normal||Keywords:||SDE arcsde widestring utf8|
The ArcSDE driver in OGR fails to read widestrings from the ArcSDE database. Currently only empty strings are returned .
The OFTWideString type in OGR is deprecated but proper calls to
should nevertheless be made in order to get strings of type SE_WCHAR. The attached file provides a workaround and may serve as a starting point. Please note that this does not implement UTF8 and so should not be used as-is.
