DMN14 — BigDecimal is not the only mapping of number to Java

  • Key: DMN14-1

  • Summary:

    Clause shows FEEL number values as mapped to XML decimal, integer, and double, but the only mapping to Java is to BigDecimal. The appropriate mapping to Java, like the appropriate mapping to XML, depends on the range and intent of the data element. BigDecimal is rarely used for anything but currency. Java int and double are much more likely to be appropriate for most data items. The mapping of number to Java should be just as flexible as the mapping to XML and PMML.

  • Disposition Summary:

    BigDecimal is not the only mapping of numbers in Java

    The use of other number types in Java can be done by implementing engine optimizations, as long as the overall semantics of FEEL numbers is supported.
