---------------------------------------

             Summary: Consider defining Angle as a subclass of java.lang.Number
                 Key: SIS-296
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SIS-296
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Utilities
    Affects Versions: 0.6
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Assignee: Martin Desruisseaux
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.7


{{org.apache.sis.measure.Angle}} was intentionally defined as *not* extending {{java.lang.Number}}.
In a previous library this was causing confusion. But a few tests suggest that this is not
causing confusion anymore with Apache SIS design. Considering {{Angle}} as a kind of {{Number}}
may help to reduce the amount of {{instanceof}} checks in code that are only interested in
the numerical value.
