European Numerical Formats

When you’re mapping how do you tell wm to format the number with European notation 100,00 vs North American notation 100.00?
Thanks.

Hi Chris, you can look at using Java classes Locale and NumberFormat.

You should be able to build a custom Java flow service to do what you want.
Here’s a good example:

Wayne,
Thanks for the quick reply. I was hoping that wm handled it internally without going directly to Java.

Hmmmm…

If you want this formatting all the time, you can set your default locale for the OS/JVM in which IS runs. Then you should get the formatting you need without any special handling within IS. I believe there is a JVM command-line parm you can add when starting IS.
