Symptoms


The field that stores data for actual order nodes is actually only 1000 bytes long (OM_HIST$ORDER_INSTANCE NODE_VALUE_TEXT). Note that the Studio Designer allows you to specify fields of longer length in the Data Dictionary.

Exceeding the length specfiied in the Data Dictionary, we receive a

"Could not convert input value: xxxx" error.

Exceeding 1000 bytes, but not exceeding the length specified in the Data Dictionary, we receive a stack trace:

java.sql.SQLException: ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character string buffer too small
ORA-06512: at "OSMDEV.OM_ORD_INST_PKG", line 3726
