Define comprehensive and powerful formatting and parsing features for the different artifacts and use cases defined in Java Money. Hereby support
The Locale extensions available since SE 7 provide a good starting point. Also the Unicode standard gives additional input.

One point is that in almost all locales western number formatting and English are used for financial calculations even if alternatives are used in other contexts. Also we need to consider use case specific representations - e.g. use of '(' and ')' in financial accounts. i.e. common use of the API may not simply be render in the users locale.

I made some tests with the new Unicode Locale extensions support, valid starting from JDK7. In my opinion the possibilities are very strict, so I still think we need some style artifacts as the ones designed currently.

There is a simple formatting API since 0.8.
