Such API is not currently available in JDK.

The Unicode CLDR project (http://www.unicode.org/cldr) maintains 
"Rule-Based Number Formatting" for various types in various locales - 
An implementation is provided by the ICU project 
(http://icu-project.org/) in C++ and Java.  This is the API 
specification of the Java implementation, including the rule syntax 
definitions -
