Working with Packed Decimals

Hi all,

I am working on a project where I need to unpack the packed decimals comming from mainframe. I was going through the IBM documentations for these they supplied a class BigDecimal which is the enhanced version of java.math.BigDecimal but I am still not able to unpack these decimals. I have no Idea how to do this. I appriciate your help in this.



Let’s take this off-line. E-mail me at

I also need to unpack the packed decimal comming from mainframe…From the previous post I learnt that we need to have either WM Main Frame Adapter or Custom Code. we dont have WM Main Frame adapter.
Can some one share ther knowlege on this.

Any Help is highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards.
