    Question User Defined Java Class - how to read a Number (decimal) input value

    Hi all,

    I have a Number field that contains values with a precision of 2.

    I am having trouble reading these fields in in my User Defined Java Class step.

    I have tried...
    Double incomingDecimalValue = get(Fields.In, "the_decimal_field").getDouble(r);

    The error returned is...
    "A method named "getDouble" is not declared in any enclosing class nor any supertype, nor through a static import"

    How do I pull in a decimal (Number) value into my Java code?

    Conversely, I am able to collect incoming integer values with...
    Long incomingDecimalValue = get(Fields.In, "the_decimal_field").getInteger(r);

    You only can use methods defined for class FieldHelper - getNumber() in your case.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
