> Attempting to write some decimal values fails.
> Here's the schema I created for this test:
> {
>   "namespace":"org.test",
>   "type": "record",
>   "name": "DecimalTest",
>   "fields": [
>     {
>       "name": "decimalVal",
>       "type": {"type": "bytes", "logicalType":"decimal","precision": 6, "scale": 4}
>        }
>   ]

> The problem is that to my knowledge I can't control the scale used by BigDecimal.
> While the first value uses a scale of 4, the second one is scale 0.
>         decimals.add(new BigDecimal(12.01F, mathContext));
>         decimals.add(new BigDecimal(12.00F, mathContext));
> It leads to these errors during the write operation:
> org.apache.avro.file.DataFileWriter$AppendWriteException: org.apache.avro.AvroTypeException: Cannot encode decimal with scale 0 as scale 4
