Inspired by recent work on normalisation by evaluation for sums, we propose a normalising and confluent extensional rewriting theory for the simply-typed lambda-calculus extended with sum types. As a corollary of confluence we obtain decidability for the extensional equational theory of simply-typed lambda-calculus extended with sum types. Unlike previous decidability results, which rely on advanced rewriting techniques or advanced category theory, we only use standard techniques.
