Java SDK warning regarding deprecated data type

It may be silly but I couldnt find the latest contructor for primitive data types .I get the warning while setting property

 

"The constructor NumberPrimitive(Double) is deprecated"

 

What is the new constructor format? Or if somebody can point to the correct documentation.

Hello,

 

The correct documentation can be found here:

http://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx_hc/javadoc/com/thingworx/types/primitives/NumberPrimitive.html

 

The constructors you mentioned are indeed marked as deprecated.

 

The recommended way to create a number primitive from other types seems to be the use of the static function creating a NumberPrimitive from a Object.

 

public static NumberPrimitive convertFromObject(java.lang.Object data)

See also:

http://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx_hc/javadoc/com/thingworx/types/primitives/NumberPrimitive.html#convertFromObject-java.lang.Object-

 

Another option is to use the common superclass Number of most numerical Java types in the constructor:

public NumberPrimitive(java.lang.Number value)

See:

http://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx_hc/javadoc/com/thingworx/types/primitives/NumberPrimitive.html#NumberPrimitive-java.lang.Number-

 

Let me know if you're still encountering problems or questions.

 

Regards,

Pascal
