Hi devs, I noticed the other day that the BigInteger converter is doing its own parsing of hexadecimal strings at https://github.com/apache/incubator-tamaya/blob/db56ee2264f79bb939cb4117c26d3d48d618f1d4/code/core/src/main/java/org/apache/tamaya/core/internal/converters/BigIntegerConverter.java#L57. I'm pretty sure it's not working for most large number cases, including a few in the docs for that class like 0xFFFFAC. Before I open another jira ticket though, can you tell me why we're reimplementing hex string parsing instead of using BigInteger("somehexstring", 16)? It's cool if that's an oversight but I want to make sure I'm not missing some subtle use case.
Thanks! William Sent from a tiny keyboard
