try:


double d = 123.30;
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("0.0000");
String s = df.format(d);
long l = Long.parseLong(s);

oops :) forgot to strip the decimal point out

double d = 123.30;
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("0.0000");
String s = df.format(d);
int dot = s.indexOf(".");
long l = Long.parseLong(s.substring(0, dot)+s.substring(dot+1));

I'm not sure but it looks as if you just want to move the decimal point 4 places to the right and then convert the resulting value to a long.  Is this what you're looking for?

double doubleVal = 123.30;
long longVal = (long) (doubleVal * 10000);

longVal should now be 1233000

I hope that helps.
