Well not quite ....rather I was thinking like this :-

Double dWrap = new Double("200");
double dVal = dWrap.doubleValue(); //this is because dWrap is an object wrapper for the primitive type double ..

use static method of Double
 double Double.parseDouble ( String s )

if u r not sure about your string that it contains double format number , catch NumberFormatException .

import java.io.*;
import java.lang.*;

public class StringToDouble {
  static void main(String agrs[]) {
        Object obj = new Double("1.101");
        System.out.println("test"+obj.toString());
  }

}
