Symptoms

You noticed a problem that even with  UIM 7.2.5.2,

The Entity Link Characteristics Still shows Old way of saving the Value In Text In UIM DB than in the Reference form as newly introduced in UIM 7.2.5.2.

Say For Example:

You have a Place Specification Say "Country" Which has a Entity Link Characteristic - "Language" referencing to the Custom Object.

When you are creating a new Place instance and chosing from a drop-down a Custom Object instance referenced by Entity Link.

 

In the UIM database, when querying for the newly created place, its value appears in clear as previously chosen from the drop down.

The steps to reproduce the issue are the following:
1) Create a Custom Object instance of specification "Language", named "English" , "Hindi".
2) Create a Place instance of specification "Country", named "US". From the drop-down "Language", chose the value "English"
3) Query in the UIM DB for the newly created place and see its "value" field. It should be something like oracle.communications.platform.entity.impl.CustomObjectDAO, but instead of that, it's "English"
