Error description

  • In your SCA module, if you use a business object map to map
    the simpleType based on a positiveInteger(xsd:positiveInteger)
    to another positiveInteger and your input data contains a very
    large number, the number overflows in the output data. For
    example, the input 123456789012345 is mapped to -2045911175 in
    the output data.

    The number is converted to an Integer type during the data
    map, causing the large number to overflow to the next line.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that converts the
    number to a BigDecimal type instead of an Integer type to
    avoid the overflow.
