Oracle Imaging and Process Management - Version: and later   [Release: 10gR3 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When adding new fields to a package template, the new fields in existing packages are stored as NULL in the database, and the value displayed through the client for the various field types is the following (regardless of the field's default value):
  • String = ""
  • Number = 0
  • Decimal = 0
  • Date = November 30, 1999
  • Boolean = False
Is this normal?
