Currency Conversion - Google Calculator API integration in ADF using GSON

First ,thanks to this post .
I was looking for any API, webservice for retrieving live currency fluctuation, finally i came to this solution that integrates Google Calculator with Java to calculate currenct currency rates and i have integrated this with my Oracle ADF Application

I have created an application using bounded taskflow -
  • Created a .jsff page with two input text , to get value of Base and Term currency and a button, on which rate is calculated

  •  In order to use Goolge Calculator, we have to use GSON (open source java library (API) to convert JSON objects in POJO (pure java object)) 
  • To access GSON library we have to add google-gson-stream-2.2.1.jar in our project library - Download Gson Jar
  • this trick uses google calculator for calculating converion rate, as we all know Google Calculator is very smart, whenever we search like 1 USD ,it always shows results according to locale
As 1 USD searched in India-
As 1 USD searched in UK- 

  • this is also hidden benefit for our application , we can pass locale to get changed values also- now see what is the code that get values from Google Calculator

  •    public void calculateFluctuationButton(ActionEvent actionEvent) throws Exception {  
         String google = "";  
         /**Get values from page component binding*/  
         String baseCurrency = baseCurrencyBind.getValue().toString();  
         String termCurrency = termCurrencyBind.getValue().toString();  
         String charset = "UTF-8";  
         /**Replace url using your values-*/  
         URL url = new URL(google + baseCurrency + "%3D%3F" + termCurrency);  
         /**Go to url directly to see you result*/  
         Reader reader = new InputStreamReader(url.openStream(), charset);  
         Result result = new Gson().fromJson(reader, Result.class);  
         // Get the value without the term currency.  
         String amount = result.getRhs().split("\\s+")[0];  

  • See in code i have passed currency notation from page (INR,USD ) to bean and passed it in url of google calculator and this url returns results
Download Complete Application -Sample ADF Application

Currency- A Java Utility, Get currency code , symbol using Locale in Java

Java provides utility classes inside java.util package.
java.util.Currency is very interesting class in this package,it represents currencies defined in ISO 4217 by 
their currency codes.
You can get currency codes, its symbol, default fraction digits using its method.

  extended by java.util.Currency 

see this short example , how we use Currency Class in Java,You can also get 
live currency fluctuation in java using Currency Converter API
package practiceJava;

import java.util.Currency;
import java.util.Locale;

public class CurrencyDemo {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // create a currency object with  locale
        Locale locale = Locale.US;
        Currency curr = Currency.getInstance(locale);
        System.out.println("Locale's currency code:" + curr.getCurrencyCode());
        // Get symbol for Currecny
        String symbol = curr.getSymbol();
        System.out.println("Symbol is :" + symbol);
        // Get default fraction digit for Currecny
        int frDigit = curr.getDefaultFractionDigits();
        System.out.println("Default fraction digit : " + frDigit);


Output look like this
