P4DTI issue job000416

TitleFixed-point numbers treated as floating-point in TeamTrack integration
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionThe TeamTrack integration treats all double-precision numeric fields as floating-point. That means that if you are using a fixed-point field to represent a release number like 16.1 then it will come out in Perforce as 16.100000000000001.
AnalysisThis is Perforce job 6884.
This is because the representation of 16.1 as a double is 16.100000000000001. The TeamTrack integration should translate fixed-point numbers specially.
Note also that the AG doesn't mention this problem; it just claims that all numeric fields are supported.
