Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-452) Import/export fails for DECIMAL type in J2ME/Foundation

Import/export fails for DECIMAL type in J2ME/Foundation

         Key: DERBY-452
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-452
     Project: Derby
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Tools  
 Environment: J2ME/CDC/Foundation using IBM's WCTME 5.7
    Reporter: Deepa Remesh

Derby import/export tool has to be modified to work in J2ME/Foundation.

I tried running the testcase importExport.java and it fails with following exception:
Test importExport starting
testing non-existing data file
Data file not found: extinout/Z.dat
testing null data file
Data file cannot be null. 
testing empty table
testing empty table with Delimited format
testing empty table import Field/Char Delimiters
PASS: setup complete
testing import/export with default options
FAIL: exception thrown:
ERROR 38000: The exception 'SQL Exception: An attempt was made to get a data value of type
'java.lang.Object' from a data value of type 'DECIMAL'.' was thrown while evaluating an expression.
ERROR 22005: An attempt was made to get a data value of type 'java.lang.Object' from a data
value of type 'DECIMAL'.
Test importExport finished

The exception is thrown because Derby system procedure for export calls getObject() on a DECIMAL
type. This is not supported in J2ME/Foundation. Derby Embedded JSR 169 Functional Spec asks
to use alternate JDBC getXXX and setXXX methods (like getString and setString) for DECIMAL
type. I think the Derby import/export utility can be modified to call getString and setString
for DECIMAL type when using J2ME/Foundation.
