    Default How to get the overridden currency symbol from the Windows?

    How in Java to get the current(overridden) currency symbol from the Windows?
    As you know t is possible in Windows (Control Panel->Region->Additional Settings->Currency) change currency symbol to the new one.
    For example default is '$' and customer change it to the ''
    And programs (Excel for example) use this new currency symbol, i.e instead of $100 you see 100.

    I need emulate similar behavior in Java.

    Look at Utils.getCurrencySymbol() and see if that works for you.

    Or maybe:

    NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance().getCurrency().g etSymbol()

    I don't know what these will do in Windows 7. Maybe you'll let us know.

    This will work for DEFAULT case, and I really need to handle a case when currency symbol overridden as I mention above.
