Developers should use the data type mapping methods of the the PipelineComponent class with caution, and may want to code data type mapping methods of their own that are more suited to the unique needs of their custom components. The existing methods do not consider numeric precision or scale, or other properties closely related to the data type itself. Microsoft may modify or remove these methods, or modify the mappings that they perform, in a future version of Integration Services.
