Money and Currency format API. In more detail:
  • JSR 354 defines a minimal MonetaryAmountFormat that adopts existing formatting functionality, such as in javax.text.DecimalFormat.
  • Some of the functionality from javax.text.DecimalFormat are remodeled, to be platform independent. Nevertheless the reference implementation may be built on top of existing JDK functionality.
  • Additionally it adds customizable grouping sizes and characters as well as additional (extensible) currency formatting capabilities.
