Hi all,

I have a problem with my web application in Linux (White Box 4). The DecimalFormat that I am using does not take into account the "regional setting". The linux have the numeric format as : "12,123,123.45" (which I wanted), but when I executed the following sentence it returns "12.123.123,45" !!!.

java.text.NumberFormat df=java.text.DecimalFormat.getCurrencyInstance(java.util.Locale.US);

How can I force to the right format? it is not supposed to be taken from the operating system?.

PS. If I run my application in a windows server it works fine.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure why you're getting the results you're getting. You could try specifically setting the DecimalFormatSymbols to the US Locale.

The problem is that I am running Jasper Report for my application and it is not formating the number as the "regional setting" ... are there some "global" java parameter to do this?

Thanks
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
