You can easily test this:


public class Program
{
   public static void main(String[] argv)
   {
      double answer = Double.parseDouble("");
      System.out.println("It produced:" + answer);
   }
}

Just put the parseDouble () call in a try block and put a catch block for the NumberFormatException.

try
{
  double d = Double.parseDouble ( "anything" ) ;

}

catch ( NumberFormatException e )
{
  // if it enters here - the format was incorrect
}
