Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1410) Formally define number support
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2012 14:10:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1410?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13208491#comment-13208491

Jason Smith commented on COUCHDB-1410:
--------------------------------------

Is Javascript relevant? The storage layer reads and writes documents. Everything arrives or
departs (whether to HTTP layer or to a view server) as JSON. What couchjs does with that JSON
seems a different issue. What my browser does with the JSON is a different issue.

I like Paul's point to simply document how it works and leave it at that. It's basically how
most databases work. Maybe Couch 3000 would improve on that, but for today...

> The JSON spec has a very loose definition of Number. CouchDB, as a database, should have
well-defined and first class support for numbers (both integral and decimal). The precision
of number support should be formally specified as should the algorithm used to represent floating-point
values, especially where an approximation must be made in the conversion.
