Processing 16 Digits Numeric Data

You can input numeric data of a length greater than 16 digits in the Salesforce.com database.

For an application that is written in the JAVA language, data with a length greater than 16 digits is defined as the double type and its precision is changed in the application.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Plug-in for Salesforce.com is implemented using the JAVA language. When data with a length greater than 16 digits is processed between the plug-in and the Salesforce.com database, you might encounter the following situations:
  • If the datum are retrieved from the Salesforce.com database, their precision is rounded to 16 digits in the plug-in.

    Affected Salesforce activities are Salesforce Query All, Salesforce Retrieve All, and Salesforce Outbound Message Listener.

  • If the datum are sent to the Salesforce.com database, they are rounded to the 16-digit precision and then sent out.

    Affected Salesforce activities are Salesforce Create All, Salesforce Update All, and Salesforce Upsert All.
