By 'edit' I mean edit the geometry in the feature class, not any attributes in the joined table. Unversioned.
I really had it in my head that you can, as long as the objectid column is included in the view along with the shape column, some half-remembered reference. So I was forging ahead and decided to double-check if there was fine print, and now it seems I was whackadoodle in the first place.
I've seen nothing to suggest it is supported, and seen in Administering ArcSDE for Oracle, page 225: "Spatial views cannot be edited through an ArcSDE client."
But then I went ahead and tried it today, and I could edit a spatial view in ArcMap, but given the above I question how safe it is.
Anybody have any experience to share?
