     170!GeoDjango has preliminary support for Oracle Locator/Spatial as of r6524 (though none of the advanced features of Oracle Spatial are utilized).  Oracle's express edition (XE) is ''not supported''.  Apparently, even though XE supports Locator's `SDO_GEOMETRY` objects and queries, XE does not include support for Java extensions -- which are required to construct and/or extract geometries from WKT.  For the sake of simplicity, WKT geometry construction and extraction was used when implementing the [browser:django/branches/gis/django/contrib/gis/db/backend/oracle Oracle spatial backend].  Patches for creating WKT from `SDO_GEOMETRY` statements would be required to extend support for the XE platforms.
     171 * ''See'' Siva Rivada's (`sravada`) forum posts in the following Oracle forum threads: "[http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=1340411&#1340411 Re: Problem with TO_WKTGEOMETRY/FROM_WKTGEOMETRY]", and "[http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=1237000&#1237000 Oracle Database 10g R2 (10.2.0.1) Express Edition (Locator) Available!!]"
     172
     173=== Requirements ===
     174 * Oracle 10g and above with Locator (installation is way beyond the scope of this documentation).
     175 * [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=84168 cx_Oracle] 4.3.2 and above.
     176 * GEOS (still required for Lazy-Geometries -- see installation instructions above).
