Subject RE: Converting BigDecimal to Long in <TR:Table>
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2007 11:06:34 GMT
     Hi.  I actually ran into the same problem myself.  There is a Jira issue created and
a patch submitted to fix this...  I'm not
sure when it will be committed to the code base.  For the time being, we are using what Adam
is suggesting (writing the bean to present a Long, and convert to/from BigDecimal as necessary),
but at some point you should be able to use a BigDecimal with the regular Trinidad converters.

I'd have to look around to see where you could get an off-the-shelf
BigDecimal Converter, but one option you always have is writing
a small adapter layer.  You can't change the underlying business
object, but you *can* write a bean that wraps up the business
object and presents a long instead of a bigdecimal.  A proper
converter is a better option, though, since you won't run a
risk of exceeding legal values.

I'm not sure where you got converter="BigDecimalConverter"
from... you do have to pick something that really is the ID
of a converter.
