Schema column definition handling with Doctrine fails for Oracle DB (OCI8)
When running the install tool database analyzer or running the report module that both need to fetch the column definitions from registered databases, an error occurs if an Oracle database is registered.
This is due to the type of a column that is set in the
data_type key of the definition array (only for Oracle), when TYPO3 works with the
See Oracle official documentation for more information.
We run into this issue on a 8.7.4 version, with a second Oracle database registered (the default DB runs on MySQL just fine). Frontend database requests with the Oracle database work fine.

Hey moin :)
Oracle is currently not supported at all (and will not be for v8 at least). At the moment nobody in the core really picked up oracle, we're supporting postgres, mssql, mysql and the next thing would probably be sqlite.
This topic will only be solved if anyone seriously picks up issues, starts bug fixing, starts creating (extending) current test setup (eg. bamboo) and finds at least one core team member who actively reviews and pushes the topic and steers this project.
Until this happens, casual issues related to oracle like this "wrong type" one will be closed as 'rejected'.
If you have a strong urge to have a working oracle support in the core, feel free to contact me and we could chat a bit about details on what would be needed to achieve that in an sustainable way.
