Subject [jira] Commented: (JEXL-24) Support Long for integer literal instead of Integers
Date Sun, 28 Oct 2007 10:55:50 GMT


dion gillard commented on JEXL-24:

We could use a BigInteger to hold the value for the IntegerLiteral.

This gives us large precision.

Or is compatibility with the EL spec worthwhile?

> Hello,
>      We use the jexl 1.1 jar for simple expression evaluation. The parser throws number
format exception when gave expression like "3988514195 - SP". What is the limit for constants
used in expression? Actually, there should not be any limit for constants in the expression,
is it correct?
> Integer literals (such as the one above) are bound by Integer.MAX_VALUE. You may have
better luck changing the value to 3988514195.0
> Consider this a request for integer literals to be stored as Longs
