How are the Smallworld arcs, circles or b-splines converted to Oracle?
Oracle has support for storing arcs so that is used for storing arcs. care must be taken when exporting old 3.1 arcs since this are stored in Smallworld as tangent arcs and they will be interpreted by the engine as b-splines resulting in a totally different shape. The Smallworld circles are stored as 2 arcs. There is no support in Oracle to store b-splines hence when b-splines are received from Smallworld, the syncmanager engine transforms them into a series of connected lines that resembles the original shape.
