Joseph Percivall updated NIFI-1662:
-----------------------------------
    Description: 
Currently the math operations in Expression Language use Longs to evaluate 
numbers. This leads to any decimal places getting truncated when performing 
operations like divide. 

NiFi should support working with decimals

  was:
Currently the math operations in Expression Language use Longs to evaluate 
numbers. This leads to any decimal places getting truncated when performing 
operations like divide. 

EL should be improved to enable the user to evaluate math expressions using 
doubles.

Another desired portion of this would be to open up the static Math class [1] 
methods (using reflection) to further enable working with Decimals.
