How to print formatted BigDecimal values?

I have a

BigDecimal
field
amount
which represents money, and I need to print its value in the browser in a format like
$123.00
,
$15.50
,
$0.33
.

How can I do that?

(The only simple solution which I see myself is getting
floatValue
from
BigDecimal
and then using
NumberFormat
to make two-digit precision for the fraction part).

Answer
public static String currencyFormat(BigDecimal n) {
    return NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance().format(n);
}

It will use your locale to choose your currency symbol. NumberFormat's javadoc
