      Description


      Add the functionality of JSR-013 Improved Decimal Arithmetic
      into the J2SE core.

      From JSR-013
      The proposed enhancements to the BigDecimal class primarily add floating point arithmetic to the existing class, allowing the use of decimal numbers for general-purpose arithmetic (especially financial and user-centric applications) without the overheads and potential errors resulting from conversions to and from another type. In addition, safe conversion methods are added to protect programmers from inadvertent data loss.
