Format Number function in PI 7.10 SPS 7



for those of you who used the FormatNumber function inside the Message Mapping, there is a quite strange change.

You must enter a decimal delimiter. Inside release 7.00 this was not a must. The error message you will receive from the mapping is a little, well, unusefull:

Check result for Message Mapping: MM_OSRBG_PP_SFC_TECO_RFC_REQUEST |

Target field mapping '/ns0:MT_OSRBG_PP_SFC_TECO_RFC/ROW/ORDERID' incomplete; reason: char should be not empty

Well on my side the lead to several problems, because I had to assign fixed number length (without decimal digits).

The only solution I had on this is to build an own user function in java doing the same.

These are the two parameters given to the function:



You have to import this:

import java.text.*;

And that's the code:

int numberInteger = Integer.parseInt(numberString.trim());

DecimalFormat piNumberFormat = new DecimalFormat(numberFormat);

return piNumberFormat.format(numberInteger);
