Formatting strings as money format

I have strings read from the database in decimal format
e.g.
48.0
which I want to format as money e.g. 48.00
There must be some class that does this in Java 1.2 ?
Thanks
Pho

Check out the DecimalFormat class in the java.text package.

Hi Bosun,
I tried to write a simple program using NumberFormat like this:

But I continually get a ParseException. What goes ?
Thanks
