Subject Override Aegis Default Mapping
Date Tue, 15 Jun 2010 18:46:47 GMT
Ok, I'm trying to override the default BigDecimalType in the Aegis
mapping; there's a bug, as it uses the toString() method on the
BigDecimal class, which by default prints any values in Scientific
Notation. According to the XSD & XML spec, decimal fields (which
BigDecimal maps to) are not supposed to use any notations other than the


Basically, 0.0000000 is being printed as 0E-8.


I created my own type class:


public class BigDecimalOverriedType extends BigDecimalType {




      public void writeObject(Object object, MessageWriter writer,
Context context) {


            writer.writeValue(((BigDecimal) object).toPlainString());





But, when I registered it:



      public void init() {

        TypeMapping typeMapping =

//          Type oldType = typeMapping.getType(BigDecimal.class);

//        typeMapping.removeType(oldType);

XMLSchemaQNames.XSD_DECIMAL, new BigDecimalOverriedType());



The BigDecimalType is still being used of a lot of BigDecimal instances.
I want my type to be used for all of them. 


Yes, I have read the source, and that's why I thought this would work,
but it's intermittent. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this issue
until I submit a bug/patch for the underlying problem?
