Decimal Point as a comma

Hey experts,

  I want (using JSTL) a number to be formatted with the decimal point appearing as a comma instead of a dot; any help on how to do that??

Try to use DecimalFormat: http://www.exampledepot.com/egs/java.text/FormatNum.html

If that doesn't work, create a new string by replacing . by , in your display string using the replaceAll () method provided by String.

I said I want it using JSTL. Anyway, I did that by changing the locale using:

<fmt:setLocale value="fr_FR" />

Thanks anyways for your help

Yeah you can set the locale too - didn't realize you wanted it in French.
