formatting integer to include commas

All I'm wanting to do is format an integer to include commas in the proper places... if I use NumberFormat class and set min and max fraction digits to "0" , will this work? I dont want the period at the end, either.
ex. 1000 to 1,000

Use DecimalFormat which is a concrete subclass of NumberFormat. You can use it to specify the exact mask you want to apply, like this:
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("#,###"); System.out.println("DateFormat: " + df.format(1000));
I believe that will give you the result you are looking for.
