Have you checked to see if there is a web-service that does this? A quick google for "currency conversion WSDL" returned a few pages of them.

Once you have a couple of WSDLs, you can use the Java web service client libraries (Downloaded from Sun prior to Java 6 -- part of core otherwise) to connect. Of course, you may have to go through a couple of services before you find one that you like.

i tried that, but the thing is how can i trust a web service. There are so many people who host their web service and i dont know how good and how accurate they are and how conssitent will be there up time. since if they provide wrong number for conversion then we are in trouble if we charge our customers wrong numbers. i know if i pay i may get the accurate web service, but as of now is there some free webservices which are maintaiend by international consortium which i can trust.
Any advice or opinions
Thanks
Rashid
