Oanda : Java Glossary

The CurrCon Java Applet displays prices on this web page converted with today’s exchange rates into your local international currency, e.g. Euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds, Indian Rupees… CurrCon requires an up-to-date browser and Java version 1.8, preferably 1.8.0_131. If you can’t see the prices in your local currency, Troubleshoot. Use Firefox for best results.

Oanda.com posts the exchange rates of the world’s currencies each day. You can view today’s exchange rates free in HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), CSV (Comma-Separated Value) or ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) via their FxDaily service. I use it for the currcon currency displays you see throughout the site like this Applet to view the value of one euro in your native currency:

Euro is €1.00 EUR

Their free FxHistory service lets you get data on what exchange rates were in the past. You can track the collapse of the US dollar, the rise of the Euro, or the price of gold.

Their free FxGraph service lets you plot charts of the values of various currencies over time. The page requires both Java and JavaScript. I could only get it to work with Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 with the Java 1.4.2 Plug-in.

Their free Currency Converter lets you convert an amount in any currency to any other. You can’t actually convert funds, just figure out what the equivalent amount is.

Their defunct FXCommerce service thatlets you display prices in different currencies on your website using their server and JavaScript. It competed with my product CurrCon.

They make their money by offering various currency exchange services added to your website.
