Subject [jira] Created: (BEEHIVE-892) AnnotationMemberTypes.Decimal.places() should have new default value
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2005 22:28:54 GMT
AnnotationMemberTypes.Decimal.places() should have new default value

         Key: BEEHIVE-892
     Project: Beehive
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Controls  
    Versions: V1    
    Reporter: Zach Smith
 Assigned to: Mike Foster 
    Priority: Minor

Currently AnnotationMemberTypes.Decimal.places() has a default value of '0' which in my opinion
causes some unecessary work on the part of the Controls developer.  If a developer sets an
AnnotationMemberTypes.Decimal and neglects to set places() greater than '0' no decimal places
can be used (fails checks at compile time).  This does not seem intuitive to me given that
a Decimal by very nature has a decimal place assumed.  I propose that one of three things
be done with places()

1. Set it in a way such that it represents unlimited decimal places (limited by the system,
2. If the main use case for this is currency consider setting places() default value to '2'
(however this could be confusing as well and perhaps a BasicCurrency type should be created
with this value)
3.  Do away with 'places()' all together and leave it to the developer to programatically
restrict decimal values.
