Joda-Money is a project to provide a small, focussed monetary library for Java, similar to Joda-Time. I released v0.5 this morning.
The code is all tested and there are no known bugs. But I wouldn't suggest using it in production code quite yet. I do want lots of feedback and testing though! So, all feedback is welcomed, here, the forum or the list.
The main API is as I originally intended.
There is a
BigMoney class, the former decorates the latter to
restrict the number of decimal places to the currency scale.
There is also
CurrencyUnit and a provided data file of currency data.
Finally, there is printing (but not parsing yet).
The goal of the library remains just these basic classes. Financial calculations (for whatever domain) or classes storing specific concepts like gross/net/tax are out of scope for the library.
This release is part of the 'release early' approach. Please provide as much feedback as you can!
