    Urgent!!: Got a java.math.BigDecimal while looking for java.

    Raymond Brandon Newbie


      I'm using JBoss 3.0.3 with Solid 2.0. I also tested this with JBoss 3.0.4 but got the same result. My application tries to store a row in to a table. The table looks like this:

      id VARCHAR (40) NOT NULL,
      bigDecimalType DECIMAL (18, 4) NOT NULL,
      bigIntegerType DECIMAL (18) NOT NULL,
      PRIMARY KEY (id)

      JBoss debug output:

      Note that in the create table script the difference between bigint and bigdecimal is the precision.

      I looked at Informix, Oracle, InstandDB and DB2. They all use BigInteger and BigDecimal the same way, that is: A BigInteger is a BigDecimal without precision (on SQL table creation level). So why not then do the following:

      below is a piece of jboss-3.0.3-src\server\src\main\org\jboss\ejb\plugins\jaws\jdbc\JDBCCommand.java.

      See /*** ***/

      protected Object getResultObject(ResultSet rs, int idx, Class destination)
      throws SQLException{

      // log.debug("getting a "+destination.getName()+" from resultset at index "+idx);
      Object result = null;

      Method method = (Method)rsTypes.get(destination.getName());
      if(method != null) {
      try {
      result = method.invoke(rs, new Object[]{new Integer(idx)});
      if(rs.wasNull()) return null;
      return result;
      } catch(IllegalAccessException e) {
      log.debug("Unable to read from ResultSet: ",e);
      } catch(InvocationTargetException e) {
      log.debug("Unable to read from ResultSet: ",e);

      result = rs.getObject(idx);
      if(result == null)
      return null;

      if(destination.isAssignableFrom(result.getClass()) && !result.getClass().equals(MarshalledObject.class) )
      return result;
      else if(log.isDebugEnabled()) {
      Normally we get here
      log.debug("Got a "+result.getClass().getName()+": '"+result+"' while looking for a "+destination.getName());



      Why not test here to see if the required type is
      BigInteger and this BigDecimal has a scale of 0.
      if so, return ((java.math.BigInteger)result).toBigInteger() ?


      if ( !result.getClass().equals(MarshalledObject.class) ) {
      if(destination.isAssignableFrom(result.getClass()) )
      return result;
      else if ( result instanceof java.math.BigDecimal && destination.isAssignableFrom( java.math.BigInteger.class) ) {
      java.math.BigDecimal bd = (java.math.BigDecimal)result;
      if (bd.scale() == 0) {
      return (bd.toBigInteger());
      } else if(log.isDebugEnabled()) {
      log.debug("Got a "+result.getClass().getName()+": '"+result+"' while looking for a "+destination.getName());

      Or am I missing something??


      rest of the function as is.
