Subject [jira] [Updated] (LANG-706) Create a MutableNumber interface with methods common to all the mutable numbers
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2011 20:24:47 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-706?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Juan Carlos Estibariz updated LANG-706:
---------------------------------------

    Description: 
With this interface it would be possible to perform generic operations on mutable numbers
without worrying about the specific type, e.g.

{code}
// these two could be created in a different methods
MutableNumber m = new MutableDouble();
Number n = ...;

// this would do the right thing
m.add(n);
{code}

(I'm not just making this up, I have a real use case and I had to create all the classes myself)
