hi guys

BigDecimal.ZERO  sets a 0
so i can do
object.setAmount(BigDecimal.ZERO);

If i want to set something like 0.00 , any idea how that should be done ?

thanks

The ZERO property always returns the value 0 with a scale of 0, so no decimal points here.
I don't know if there's a better solution to this, but I'd use that approach:
BigDecimal bdzero = new BigDecimal("0.00");
object.setAmount(bdzero);
