i am using locale "no_NO" (norwegian) in my birt report viewer.

I want to have a standard and generic way of formatting all the currency numbers in my different reports, whats the best way of doing this ?

I want to format all currency in this format 1.333.222,05 . but in Report Design if i choose Auto as Locale in format number, it shows the standard norwegian format which is: 1,333,234.56

Is it possible to specify a new standard norwegian format for currency in for example: ? or somewhere else...

if i put this line in "beforeFactory" it works though, but this doesnt seem the right way:

The other way is to choose Format as Currency and Locale as "italian" for every report, but this does not seem like a generic and good way.

Have you tried just creating a default style for the data item and using a custom pattern to format the number? If you use the predefined style name it will apply automatically. If you use a different style name you can apply the style to just the currency data items.
