      Description

      Having two versions of the data type APIs (one for Java, one for Scala) requires downstream libraries to also have two versions of the APIs if the library wants to support both Java and Scala. I took a look at the Scala version of the data type APIs - it can actually work out pretty well for Java out of the box.

      The proposal is to move Spark SQL data type definitions from org.apache.spark.sql.catalyst.types into org.apache.spark.sql.types, and make the existing Scala type API usable in Java.
