Hi,
I have this in jsp page.

String a_c = "100.00";
String b_c = "100.55";
float d_f = Float.parseFloat(a_c);
float e_f = Float.parseFloat(b_c);

out.print(d_f + "<br>" + e_f);

The output i get is :
100.0
100.55

My question is how to make the output
100.00
100.55
I mean i want the float always have 2 decimal point.

Alternatively, use the java.math.BigDecimal class. It will represent _exactly_ the value it is asked to hold, not _approximately_ like float or double. If scaling or rounding is necessary it can do that too. And conversion to various primitive types is supported.
