Use of variableType field in DecisionTableExpression Representation class

Hi, what is the use of variableType field in org.flowable.ui.modeler.model.decisiontable.DecisionTableExpressionRepresentation.
While inspecting it for String, Number and Collection, it always comes as null

The type information for String, Number and Collection is stored in type field.
Please let me know if I’m missing anything.


This was introduced when a variable could be selected from a list and the type of that variable was known. This is type info could be used as a hint when transformation would be needed from the variable type to the input type.
Long story short; it’s not filled now and not used now. We will have a look if it can be removed.
