SOA 11g: BPEL Decimal Variable Comparison Gives Incorrect Results (Doc ID 1513277.1)

 There is a problem when using the <= comparison inside XPATH when the data type is decimal.   Only the first digit of both left and right expression is used for comparison.

Below are return values of comparison

1.0 <= 30.0 (returns true, as 1 < 3)
2.0 <= 30.0 (returns true, as 2 < 3)
3.0 <= 30.0 (returns true, as 3 == 3)

4.0 <= 30.0 (returns false, expected true, as 4 > 3, ideally 4 and 30 should have been compared but looks like XPATH is only comparing first digit)
