Solaris 7 5/99 Release Notes (SPARC Platform Edition)

Values in Italian Euro Currency Format Are Not Represented With Fractional Digits (4183898)

In the Italian locale that supports euro currency (it_IT_EURO), the default currency format obtained using either getCurrencyInstance() or getCurrencyInstance(locale) from the java.text.NumberFormat returns currency values formatted as integers.

Workaround: Use your own currency format rather than the locale's default.
