Java Standards

As leading Java and JCP experts agree, some aspects you also cover are worth considering it for a Java Community Program standard (JSR) are you alive and willing enough, to participate in such an effort?

Meaning, a few core components like Money or Currency are to be standardized in a (yet to be raised) JSR or alternatively a sub-project of Eclipse Financial Platform (without dependencies on Eclipse as such, so it'll work with any Swing app like MD just as well ;-)

I am also a user of MoneyDance who would be happy to see it using and probably even defining further IT standards beside OFX or similar ;-)

    Hi Werner,

    I'm not sure if I would be much help with the Money or Currency classes as we've currently got a solution that is moneydance-specific and probably not generalizable enough to be a standard. Basically, we use 64 bit long variables for currency values and rely on a sort of Currency class and some static methods to convert between currencies based on an internal exchange rate table.

    I am interested in contributing wherever I can though. Just let me know what I can do to help!

    Thanks, Sean

    Hi Sean,

    Thanks a lot for the prompt reply. I plan to broaden the discussion I started with mostly fellow JSR-275 EG members and a few others in the next few days or weeks. I already prepared an email, but also try to add input from e.g. my co SpecLead Jean-Marie and what he did in JScience so far.

    Which would be the best email, the one on the reply to field or this website, or do you prefer e.g. that behind your LinkedIn account? Wherever you prefer I'd be happy to include you in this discussion.

    Kind Regards, Werner

    Hi Werner,

    My private email is probably better: [email blocked] (which is the same as [email blocked]).

    Thanks! Sean
