Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-473) Number to Boolean conversion
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2012 16:19:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-473?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13179600#comment-13179600
] 

Sebb commented on CONFIGURATION-473:
------------------------------------

Why not 0 == true, otherwise == false? 
[As per the Unix shell.]

Or 0 == false; 1 == true; anything else (Boolean) null?

Not saying your choice is wrong, just that it is not the only possible conversion, so the
rationale for choosing it needs to be carefully documented.

> The conversion of number values to boolean is not supported. {{0}} should be converted
to {{false}}, and any other number should be converted to {{true}}.
