BigDecimal doubleValue() Method in Java


The java.math.BigDecimal.doubleValue() is an in-built function which converts the BigDecimal object to a double. This function converts the BigDecimal to Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY or Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY as appropriate or according to the passed object, if its magnitude is too big to be represented as a double.

Note: The information about the decimal precision of the Double value of the given BigDecimal value can be lost even if the return value is finite.

Syntax:

public double doubleValue()

Parameters: The method does not accept any parameters.

Return Value: This method returns the double value of this BigDecimal Object.



Examples:

Input : 11234
Output : 11234.0

Input : 2679.30000
Output : 2679.3
