Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-1402) Support for DECIMAL type
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2014 01:16:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1402?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13969109#comment-13969109

Xuefu Zhang commented on AVRO-1402:
-----------------------------------

Fair enough. I just liked to put all the options on the table, and the proposal sounds like
a reasonable compromise. Let's proceed then.

A minor question: do we put upper bounds for the precision/scale?

> Currently, Avro does not seem to support a DECIMAL type or equivalent.

> Adding DECIMAL support would be particularly interesting when converting types from Avro
to Hive, since DECIMAL is already a supported data type in Hive (0.11.0).
