This library is my take on JSR-385 to provide a useful API for representing physical measurements and perform
conversions between different units.
Its not a reference implementation of the Units of Measurement API due to technical limitations of the latter one.
Instead it takes many of the concepts of the released API and builds a full-fledged units of measurement library around
them to be able to represent physical measurements in different units with arbitrary precision.
The design goal of the library is to include:
fully typed quantities:
transparent support for double and arbitrary decimal precision quantities (using BigDecimal):
support for generic quantities:
support for quantity factories:
support for the standard unit manipulations as defined by JSR-385 et al
support for as many units as possible, the amazing GNU units library is the reference to compare to
