I've encountered a strange platform-dependent SHP import problem.

Everything works fine on Windows, shape files are converted fine to database. There is although small little warning:

[[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '9' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] WARN geotools.jdbc - No mapping for com.vividsolutions.jts.geom.MultiLineString

Obviously SHP contains Multilinestring. So why the same code on Windows works, but on Linux we've got exception:

UnsupportedOperationException("Cannot encode MultiLineString (yet)")

Would appreciate if someone could help.

looks like this is coming from the database driver code (jdbc) - which database are you using? – iant Apr 25 '12 at 8:40
