The java.math.BigDecimal.max(BigDecimal val) method in Java is used to compare two BigDecimal values and return the maximum of the two. This is opposite to BigDecimal max() method in Java.
public BigDecimal max(BigDecimal val)
Parameters: The function accepts a BigDecimal object val as parameter whose value is compared with that of this BigDecimal object and the maximum value is returned.
Return Values: This method returns the BigDecimal whose value is the greater of this BigDecimal and val. In case if both are equal, this BigDecimal is returned.
Input : a = 17.000041900, b = 17.0000418999 Output : 17.000041900 Input : a = 235900000146, b = 236000000000 Output : 236000000000
Below programs will illustrate max() function of BigDecimal class.
Maximum Value among 235900000146 and 236000000000 is 236000000000
