hope the following piece of code might help.

DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat();
df.applyPattern("#,##,###,####");
BigDecimal bd = new BigDecimal("1111111111111111");
System.out.println("Result :"+df.format(bd.longValue()).replace(',','-'));;

here i have tried to use java.text.DecimalFormat class
here the replace(',','-') is used, since i was not able to use '-' as seperator in the pattern.

So the quick and dirty fix is to convert the BigDecimal into a string (using toString), grab the last four numbers, and put xxxx-xxxx-xxxx- in front of it.

BigDecimal bd = new BigDecimal("1234123412341234");
String cNum = bd.toString();
String filteredCnum = "xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-" + cNum.substring(cNum.length()-4);
