Subject [jira] Issue Comment Edited: (LANG-406) Add FractionFormat to oacl.text
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2008 04:49:08 GMT

--------------------------------------------------------------

I'm not sure why we have Fraction in both Lang and Math - I guess historically they just evolved
separately. The duplication does seem like a waste of effort though and Math IMO is a better
location - also Math already has a FractionFormat implementation. Perhaps would be a good
idea to compare both Fraction implementations and ensure that one supports all features of
the other and then deprecate one.

> I'd like to add a FractionFormat implementation, capable of formatting Numbers including
oacl.math.Fraction to fractions, and of parsing fraction representation (and standalone integers)
into oacl.math.Fraction instances.  Implementation and test forthcoming; opinions welcome.
