Hi Abhishake,

Did you check the code for setSessionLocale. I guess, that the information
for language and currency is stored in the locale session. If you also check
the code for create a new webshopping cart, pasted below, it gets the
currency from the locale. So i think the code should work as it is, but it
does not.

On the demo server too, when the locale is change to say, English (Great
Britain), the configurable products shows the prices in GBP and not any
other products. Also when a configurable product, quoted in GBP, is added to
the shopping card, the currency is change to USD.

I thus think multi-currency feature is already build in, but the code for
shoppingcart and product prices have some error.

I did not try your code, but will soon try and let you know if it works for


    /** Gets or creates the shopping cart object */
    public static ShoppingCart getCartObject(HttpServletRequest request,
Locale locale, String currencyUom) {
        LocalDispatcher dispatcher = (LocalDispatcher)
        ShoppingCart cart = (ShoppingCart)
        HttpSession session = request.getSession(true);
        if (cart == null) {
            cart = (ShoppingCart) session.getAttribute("shoppingCart");
        } else {
            session.setAttribute("shoppingCart", cart);

        if (cart == null) {
            cart = new WebShoppingCart(request, locale, currencyUom);
            session.setAttribute("shoppingCart", cart);
        } else {
            if (locale != null && !locale.equals(cart.getLocale())) {
            if (currencyUom != null &&
!currencyUom.equals(cart.getCurrency())) {
                try {
                    cart.setCurrency(dispatcher, currencyUom);
                } catch (CartItemModifyException e) {
                    Debug.logError(e, "Unable to modify currency in cart",
        return cart;
