#20879 new Bug

BinaryField doesn't work with Oracle on Python3

Reported by: slafs Owned by: nobody
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version: 1.6-beta-1
Severity: Normal Keywords: BinaryField Oracle Python3
Cc: shai@… Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


I made a repo as a showcase of this bug

The test case in this repo is taken from Django testsuite.

The exception i'm getting is this:

django.utils.encoding.DjangoUnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xfe in position 2: invalid start byte. You passed in b'\x00F\xfe' (<class 'bytes'>)

The problem is with handling Oracle params in class. I think I may have a solution on this.

Hi, and thanks for your report.

I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Please also specify exactly which Python3 and Oracle versions you are working with -- there are known Unicode problems related to bugs in certain versions of Oracle (#20292).

Also, you should be aware that Oracle under Python3 is generally broken (#20725), so the problem may lie deeper than you think.
