Do you know anything in Java which can do format control like those format indicator in C such as %d %f ...

Actually, the problem I met is that when writing some math function in Java, I don't want to output some double values in scientific format like 1.0034872E-5.  Instead, I want to represent them like 0.00010034872.  Do you have any idea about that?  Thank you in advance.
