Where can I find a DecimalFormat that will handle BigDecimals? The JDK docs say that only Longs and Doubles are currently ( 1.3 ) returned.

You can find at least one class that does this at IBM's Alphaworks. See NumberFormat. Unfortunately, as with most items on the site, the license is only for developer experimentation and expires after 90 days.

Sun's documentation does imply that BigDecimal and other types may be returned sometime in the future.
