Hello All,

Continuing with the discussion related to user_defined functions and in 
particular to the current problem of formatting... Java 1.5 has 
extensive capabilities to formatting through the java.util.Formatter class

@see http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/java/util/Formatter.html

Has anyone worked on getting Monetdb to access Java? If not Java, where 
is there some info on the interface to C?
