Problem in setting locale

I want to display my data (which is numeric) in German format.
I am able to do so using the following code :
double dbl=2345.67;
NumberFormat nf= NumberFormat.getInstance(Locale.GERMAN);
But this code works only on some machines.
On other machines it shows the data in the default English format only.
Pls help.

Hi Pallavi,
This is just a guess, but the machines that you say are not displaying the number in German format, may be missing the appropriate "properties" files associated with the German locale.
In case you haven't already discovered it, perhaps this Web site may be of help:
Good Luck,
