We use Dali to generate Entities from tables. When we do this, every
numeric database field is mapped as a BigDecimal type. Most of the numeric
fields in the database have only 7 digits, so they should fit in a normal
Integer or int. We have a lot of numeric fields, so we don't want to
manually edit all entities. Is there a way to tell Dali that it should use
Integers for database fields which fit?

We have an IBM AS/400 database and are using TopLink JPA as EJB3
implementation.

Best regards,
Bart Kummel

I wanted newsgroup readers to know that this issue has been entered in
bugzilla (bug 203278) to track the request for this feature. Currently
there is no way to tell Dali what to use for the attribute type in
generation.

The suggested work-around is to do a standard search and replace on your
Entities after generation.
