New Locale aware conversion logic

As from Struts 2.5.12 a new conversion logic was introduced which can affect your applications when using uncommon solutions. One of these is to use a number literals in Freemarker template. In such case Freemarker treats them as numbers (as BigDecimals) and Struts logic converts them to a string with decimal zero, see the example below:

Code Block
languagexml
<@s.textfield name="userId" value=35/>

this snippet will produce the following Html control:

Code Block
html
html
<input type="text" name="userId" value="35.0"/>

To resolves this problem you must add quotes around the value:

Code Block
html
html
<@s.textfield name="userId" value="35"/>

This is due how Freemarker treats a number literals.
