Hi I have a very basic doubt about FBN
All the data is stored as STRINGS
Where should we convert the data into appropriate type
For example we need to convert "Avail Seats" to Integer.
And where should be this mapping.
Is it OK to modify data info class
Thanks

You can parse the avail. seats string to an integer when you need to process it. For ex. while validating a booking request (no of seats required should be less than no of seats available) or while updating the database after reducing the no. of available seats.
For displaying etc. you can simply use it as a string.
You can say that this is a limitation of your database that you can only store strings. You can but you don't need to modify the Data class for this.

Thx Paul
Yeah I can convert the fields for claculation.
But in that case I have to hardcode the conversion
on client side.
But I think it is okay for this application.
Any Comments?
