Subject [jira] [Updated] (LANG-693) Method createNumber from NumberUtils doesn't work for floating point numbers other than Float
Date Thu, 28 Apr 2011 17:33:03 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-693?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Henri Yandell updated LANG-693:
-------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: 3.x

Setting fix version to 3.x (i.e. post 3.0). Seems like a very fair issue to take a stab at
fixing.

> Method createNumber from NumberUtils is trying to parse a string with a floating point
number always first as a Float, that will cause that if we send a string with a number that
will need a Double or even a BigDecimal the number will be truncate to accommodate into the
Float without an exception to be thrown, so in fact we will no be returning ever neither a
Double nor a BigDecimal.
