Description Stephan Bublava 2008-12-02 10:03:28 UTC
1) ELSupport.coerceToNumber() cannot coerce java.math.BigDecimal to java.lang.Number which is basically a no-op. This is a regression from 6.0.16.


public void testNumberCoercion() {
	BigDecimal d = new BigDecimal("23");
	try {
		Assert.assertEquals(d, ELSupport.coerceToNumber(d, Number.class));
	} catch (IllegalArgumentException ex) {
		fail("conversion failed");

2) BigDecimal is immutable. The code to convert from BigDecimal to BigDecimal should therefore return its input, not a copy. (ELSupport.java line 235)
