Problem with Array of Nullable types as parameter

Post by grumpy » Wed 25 May 2011 16:20

Hi all,
I want to call a stored procedure with an array parameter which actually works with not nullable types like decimal[].
I need NULL-Values in the Array so I decided to use decimal?[] instead of decimal[]. Now I get an InvalidCastException: Ungültige Umwandlung von "System.Decimal" in "System.Nullable`1[[System.Decimal, mscorlib, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089]]".

Any hints how I can solve this problem?
Thanks in advance,
Martin

Code: Select all

            OracleConnection conn = new OracleConnection("User Id=user;password=oracle;Direct=True; server=myserver;sid=mysid");
            conn.Open();

            decimal?[] numbers = new decimal?[] {1,2, null};
            
            OracleCommand cmd = new OracleCommand("ptest.arrayparmtest", conn);

            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            cmd.Parameters.Add("Result", OracleDbType.Number, ParameterDirection.ReturnValue);
            cmd.Parameters.Add("numbers", OracleDbType.Double, numbers, ParameterDirection.Input);
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
            decimal res = Convert.ToDecimal( cmd.Parameters["Result"].Value); 
            conn.Close();

The bug with inserting NULLs into Oracle array and table data types was fixed in dotConnect for Oracle starting from the 6.10.103 version (revision history).

If this information does not help, please tell us the version (x.xx.xxx) of your dotConnect for Oracle and DDL of your database objects.

I cannot reproduce the problem with the following code:

Code: Select all

DDL:
  CREATE OR REPLACE TYPE "NUMBER_TBL" IS array(10) of number; 
  CREATE OR REPLACE function arrayparmtest (numbers IN NUMBER_TBL)
  return Number
  AS
  BEGIN
  return numbers(1);
  END;

C#:
    OracleConnection conn = new OracleConnection("User Id=***;password=***;server=***;Direct=false;");
    conn.Open();
    decimal?[] numbers = new decimal?[] { 11, 12, null };
    OracleCommand cmd = new OracleCommand("arrayparmtest", conn);
    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
    cmd.Parameters.Add("Result", OracleDbType.Number, ParameterDirection.ReturnValue);
    cmd.Parameters.Add("numbers", OracleDbType.Array, numbers, ParameterDirection.Input).ObjectTypeName = "NUMBER_TBL";
    cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
    decimal res = Convert.ToDecimal(cmd.Parameters["Result"].Value);
    conn.Close();
Tell us how we should modify this sample to reproduce the issue with dotConnect for Oracle v 6.30.172.

Be aware that there is the bug with OracleCommand.ExecuteArray() for nullable value types in the current version (refer to this thread). The fix will be included in the next build of dotConnect for Oracle.

  CREATE OR REPLACE procedure test (p_Id     IN                    dbms_sql.Number_Table,

    cmd.Parameters["p_NumberValue"].IsNullable = true;

    cmd.Parameters["p_StringValue"].IsNullable = true;

    cmd.Parameters["p_Id"].ArrayLength = ids.Length;
    cmd.Parameters["p_NumberValue"].ArrayLength = numberValues.Length;
    cmd.Parameters["p_DateValue"].ArrayLength = dateValues.Length;
    cmd.Parameters["p_StringValue"].ArrayLength = stringValues.Length;
    cmd.Parameters["p_StringValue"].Size = 4000;

    cmd.Parameters["p_Id"].Value = ids;
    cmd.Parameters["p_NumberValue"].Value = numberValues;
    cmd.Parameters["p_DateValue"].Value = dateValues;
    cmd.Parameters["p_StringValue"].Value = stringValues;


    cmd.ExecuteNonQuery(); 
    conn.Close();

The problem is fixed. Look forward to the next build of dotConnect for Oracle. I will post here when it is available for download.
