Hi,

I want to check if the BigDecimal value is positive or negative. How can i do that? I didn't find any method which does this in the API.

Thanks,
Srikanth.

Try the compareTo method and pass BigDecimal.ZERO.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
