      Description

      The J2SE 5.0 BigDecimal's toString() method behaves differently than in earlier versions. See also
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/java/math/BigDecimal.html#toString()
      and
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/math/BigDecimal.html#toString()

      In J2SE 5.0 we have introduced BigDecimal's toPlainString() which behaves exactly like the toString() method in earlier versions.

      This needs to be documented at
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/compatibility.html
