I would like to know something about Oracle National Language Support.
Does this mean that for this code snippet,
Float f = new Float("123.23");
wont work on Oracle Server In France,
And it would require,
float f = Float.parseFloat("123.34");
Locale l = Locale.FRENCH;
DecimalFormat f1 = (DecimalFormat)NumberFormat.getInstance(l);
String s = f1.format(f).toString();
I am really clueless about this whole thing....
Gimmie some directions as to where should i look.
