I am using a VO to exchange information from the server (business layer) and the client over network.

But, in the server, when I need to create a array list of the VOs, I am converting the database strings for each field in its base type to store in VO. And, when converting the rate string (currency) to a Float wrapper type, I need to care about localization, because in the database, the rates are stored as "$450.80" for example, and this are the US currency format.

My Vo has this variable:



But I don't know what to do at this point... Someone have a solution?

Other way I thought is just don't convert the database strings to its base types, and my VO could have strings as fields too. Maybe this be the way...

I would appreciate some comments.

Thanks,
Marcelo.

Well, I took the folowing solution: I create the VO using strings as the fields, because this way I dont need to check for the field integrity.
My would be creating an aditional problem to me doing that.

So, now its more simple and easy to understand.

Marcelo.
