Regarding the various spatial types that are supported by ArcGIS:
What types auto-validate geometries? And what types don't auto-validate?
For example, if I were to create a polygon geometry from this incorrect WKT (the last vertex is slightly different from the first vertex, which is wrong), what would happen? Would the incorrect geometry be accepted, or would it throw an error?
select sde.st_geometry ('polygon ((676832.320 4857578.086, 665287.423 4857578.086, 665277.423 4878109.585, 676832.320 4878119.585, 676842.320 4857588.086))', 26917) from dual
ORA-06512: at "SDE.ST_GEOMETRY_SHAPELIB_PKG", line 12
ORA-06512: at "SDE.ST_GEOMETRY", line 55
Have I understood that correctly?
