Use numbers and operators

The B2B type exchanges that you might handle in the integration engine very often relate to ordering and billing. An important capacity of DML for this type of transaction is its ability to manipulate numbers.

In this chapter, you return to the use of numbers and some of the ways in which DML works with them, including basic arithmetic and more advanced functions. The common pitfalls of using numbers in the integration engine environment are included.

When you have finished this chapter, you will be familiar with the basic categories of numbers that DML uses, and with the operators and built-in functions for using them.
