Help With Spatial Views in Oracle

Hello Kind People. I'm trying to create a database view in Oracle, joining polygon feature class in the geodatabase to an attribute table. I'm using the ArcCatalog tool Data Management Tools --> General --> Create Database View. I specify all of the input parameters, including the SQL to define the view. I'm including the OBJECTID and SHAPE field from the feature class. The tool runs fine, but when I look at the view in Catalog, it's just a data table. The SHAPE column is of type LONG. I thought I should be able to load the view up in ArcMap and see the geometries. Am I misssing something here? Than you very much in advance for any and all assistance. David
