New numeric data type DOUBLE

Release notes for version 2.3.0 on May 7, 2012


New numeric data type DOUBLE

The existing FlowHeater numeric data types INTEGER, DECIMAL and CURRENCY were optimized for financial mathematics to avoid the occurrence of rounding differences. A new data type DOUBLE is now introduced for the higher precisions required in scientific calculations. The FlowHeater DOUBLE data type can process the SQL data types of float, real, single and double.


Bug fix: SQL Heater

When values are obtained via the SQL Heater (database lookup) the Heater now returns the data type of the value returned according to the data type available. Text formatting of the looked-up value must no longer be explicitly defined; it reads the standard format settings from the WRITE Adapters.
