I have a really big problem which is the serialization of
Number > Long and Long --> Number data types. I have a java
object that contains a Long ID attribute. The id is the database
identifier and it could for instance be 200801171410501446. Our
id's are generated and will always be 18 digits long. The java
object is mapped to a AS object and the id attribute in the AS
object is a Number data type. The really weird thing is that once
Flex does it's data type conversion, the value of the ID's don't
match anymore. The Java Long value is :200801171410501446 and the
Number value becomes: 200801171410501440. I really can't seem to
figure out why this is happening. The pattern seems to be that once
the Java attribute value becomes more than 16 digits, flex does
some weird stuff with the remaining digits.
Anyone has a clue what goes on here ?
I did solve it temporarily by changing the ID to a String but
that sucks because sorting in the datagrid doesn't work properly
