Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2693) Add DECIMAL data type
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 01:17:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2693?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13536660#comment-13536660

Gunther Hagleitner commented on HIVE-2693:
------------------------------------------

No, I don't feel strongly. I was playing with your patch this afternoon and am starting to
think this is better. For instance, one would run into the same problem with BigInteger where
at some point you'd run out of space in the double and start having to use a big int literal.
So it seems consistent to do BigDecimal that way as well. Also, most cases are going to be
covered with the cast and when someone runs into issues there are ways to handle it.
