What are you using to view the Oracle values?  Have you tried reading the values back out of Oracle using JDBC?
Basic question, is this actually a problem, or is it just the appearance of the number that concerns you?

Try using Float.

follow what other experts have suggested. if you have problem on displaying value in web page, then your might also want to look into java.text.DecimalFormat

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

--Yes, I am using JDBC and fetching the values back using ResultSet.  
This is indeed a problem because users don't like it that way.


>>Try using Float.

--Tried that.Infact I started with using Float but then switched to Double thinking it may solve the problem.

then, you indeed need java.text.DecimalFormat

java.text.DecimalFormat df = new java.text.DecimalFormat( "#,###0.00" );
...
double amount = rs.getDouble( "column_name" );

...
<p>amount: <%=df.format( amount )%></p>

Gotta acknowledge kennethxu's expreience here; avoiding the trap of taking the problem description as gospel, seeing through it, and solving the actual problem... (presentation of numbers on screen, NOT in the database)
