Hi Experts,

I'm trying to format currency in Brazil but Java simply does not know how to handle this.

ex:
NumberFormat format = NumberFormat.getInstance(new Locale("br"));
Object value = format.parse("5,45");

value ends up translating to 54500.  It's very strange.  Does anyone know why and how I can properly format the value?

Thanks!

You're constructing your Locale wrongly. Should be
new Locale("pt", "BR")

Open in new window
