    Default number formatter in java


    Can anybody help me out in formatting a number in indian currency.
    For Example i want to display 123000000.34 like 12,30,00,000.34.
    I tried with avaiable examples in the net, but the amount is displaying like 123,000,000.34
    I tried with my code but summing the amounts by using double variable I am getting the amount as 1.2E10.When I pass 1.2E10 to the function which I write it is diplaying only 1.

    When I sum the amounts using long variable, decimals are not displaying. Please help me out in solving the issue.

    Can you Show your code for doing the formatting?

    Did you read the API doc for the class you are using?
    I found this in the doc:
    The grouping separator is commonly used for thousands, but in some countries it separates ten-thousands.

    Are you using NumberFormatter? Are you using the correct NumberFormat for the locale?

    If you post the relevant code, perhaps we might be able to make some helpful suggestions.
