Currency Language Support
As Anatole states in his “Go for the Money! JSR 354 Adds First Class Money and Currency Support to Java” post, support for monetary values is painful. In the financial community, there should be a cheer to see that once JSR 354 is finalised in Q1 2015, development of complex currency applications e.g FX Single Dealer Platforms, should get a little easier.
Regards to anyone on Java 7, there is hope, but ideally you want to be looking to move to Java 8 in my view:
JSR 354 is planned to be finalized in Q1 of 2015. For users who are still working on Java 7, we plan a forward-compatible backport once the JSR is final.
