Currency conversion is gaining importance as cloud applications are rolled out globally. Without any efforts, you can build your application once and deliver a localized experience to users around the world.

If you develop your application in Java and want to run it on SAP Cloud Platform, we have just the right tool for your currency conversion capabilities.

Save the date and join us at the community call on March 9

In our next community call on Mar 9, we will present details about the Currency Conversion library and show a demo on the usage from a Java application. As usual, we will build a cloud-native application that will be ready to run on the cloud.

About the library

Currency Conversion is an extension library built on SAP Cloud SDK. You can use this library to facilitate currency exchange rate conversions.

You can use the library for the following functions:

  • Direct one-to-one conversions, from a source currency to a target currency.

  • Indirect conversions by using inverse rates or a "reference currency".

  • Fixed rate conversions, for when you have the exact currency exchange rate that you want to use in your conversion operations.

  • Non-fixed rate conversions, for when you have a set of exchange rates, as opposed to the exact rate. The library will pick the "best rate" from the set depending on various factors.
