Specify NumberUtils.parseNumber() trim behavior in the javadoc [SPR-9523] #14157
Prior to performing conversion, NumberUtils is removing all whitespace from input string instead of removing only leading/trailing whitespace. This results in incorrect conversions instead of expected exceptions. As an example, calling NumberUtils.parseNumber("2 3", Double.class) will result in a new Double("23").
Affects: 3.0.5, 3.1.1

I think the current behavior is correct, it is probably used in various application where you input credit card number or other use cases like that where in between space characters are usual, so I turn this issue into a Javadoc improvement one.
