Subject [jira] [Created] (MATH-744) BigFraction.doubleValue() returns Double.NaN for large numerators or denominators

BigFraction.doubleValue() returns Double.NaN for large numerators or denominators
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MATH-744
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-744
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.2
            Reporter: Thundre
         Attachments: site.patch

The current implementation of doubleValue() divides numerator.doubleValue() / denominator.doubleValue().
 BigInteger.doubleValue() fails for any number greater than Double.MAX_VALUE.  So if the user
has 308-digit numerator or denominator, the resulting quotient fails, even in cases where
the result would be well inside Double's range.

I have a patch to fix it, if I can figure out how to attach it here I will.
