Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 799273
Failing SerializableInstanceDbTest jBPM test.
Last modified: 2016-09-20 01:08:29 EDT
Description of problem:
is failing with message:
java.lang.ClassCastException: java.math.BigDecimal cannot be cast to java.math.BigInteger
The exception is thrown when an attempt is made to cast the retrieved ID (from the JBPM_BYTEARRAY table) to BigInteger.
Looks like this is caused by Hibernate mapping the NUMERIC and NUMBER data type to BigDecimal when not specified otherwise.
Sorry, I thought I posted a comment to this before I went on PTO, but it's not showing up here.
In any case, which DB did you see this with?
Hi Marco! Welcome back!
NP - I know you where enjoying the snow;).
Which databases? All which declare the ID column on JBPM_BYTEARRAY as 'number' or 'numeric'. If I remember correctly then this includes mssql, sybase and oracle.
GSS considers this medium priority. jBPM gets plenty of attention, anything we can do to make it smoother is appreciated.
On Len's request appending comment:
I don't think this is a regression. I was not able to found any bug fixes which would cause this error.
