Subject Proposal: Wrap ICU4J to implement java.text.DecimalFormat enhancement of Java 5.0
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2006 14:27:30 GMT
As mentioned in Java 5.0 "New Features":

The DecimalFormat class has been enhanced to format and parse BigDecimal 
and BigInteger values without loss of precision. Formatting of such 
values is enhanced automatically; parsing into BigDecimal needs to be 
enabled using the setParseBigDecimal method.

As I know, ICU4J 3.4 has already support BigDecimal and BigInteger. And 
ICU4J is special for internationalization. Shall we just wrap ICU4J 3.4 
to implement the new enhancement? Or simply re-implement whole 
DecimalFomat/NumberFormat by wrapping ICU4J's classes?

Any comments? Thanks a lot
