Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-3786) Add BigDecimal and BigInteger as Basic types
Date Tue, 19 Apr 2016 12:15:25 GMT
Timo Walther created FLINK-3786:

             Summary: Add BigDecimal and BigInteger as Basic types
                 Key: FLINK-3786
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-3786
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Timo Walther
            Assignee: Timo Walther

We already had the discussion on the mailing list some months ago about adding BigDecimal
and BigInteger as basic types.

Especially for business or scientific applications it 
makes sense to support the BigInteger and BigDecimal types natively. In 
my opinion they are as important as Date or Void and should be added as 
BasicTypes. The Table API would also benefit from it.
