Steps to ReproduceSteps to reproduce issue:
1) Install Corticon Server for .NET
2) Extract the 87459.zip file attached into the CORTICON_WORK_DIR\Samples\Rule Projects\JOM\Rules directory after backing up the existing Testing_Increment.ers and Testing_Increment_inst.ers files
3) Invoke the .NET JOM Test Client located at CORTICON_HOME\Server .Net\samples\bin\JomClient.exe
4) Click the "Test" button, to see the output of the BOs

Observed Results:
aObjectA.Decimal_* values are truncated or rounded for the decimal data types

aObjectA.Decimal_Class = 987654.1
aObjectA.Decimal_Prim = 987654.1

Expected Results:
aObjectA.Decimal_* values should not be truncated or rounded for the decimal data types

aObjectA.Decimal_Class = 987654.123457
aObjectA.Decimal_Prim = 987654.123457
Clarifying Information
The decimalscale property is set to the default value of 6 and should be rounding to the sixth decimal place.
Error Message
Defect/Enhancement NumberDefect 87459
Cause
Corticon Server for .NET execution of Business Objects incorrectly converted Corticon's internal BigDecimal object into .NET cli.System.BigDecimal prior to setting into a Business Object.
Resolution
Fixed in hot fixes 5.5.2.34, 5.6.1.19, 5.7.0.2.
Refer to Progress Articles to download and install the hot fix:
