Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-76) Edm.Decimal is a floating-point type

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-76?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=32453#action_32453 ] 

Michael Pizzo commented on ODATA-76:

Note in ODATA-256, Evan cautions against supporting floating point in a decimal type:
"I recommend caution with any proposal to introduce quad precision binary floating point, or even decimal floating point for that matter. I do not believe that the support is there for such types across a sufficient number of the client types that may need to interoperate with OData services."

> The definition of the Scale facet as the maximum number of digits right of the decimal point implies that there may be less digits to the right and consequently more digits to the left of the decimal point (up to the value of the Precision facet), so the decimal point is allowed to float within the given Precision.
