to display it to 2 places use DecimalFormat:

double d = 357.99021;
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("0.00");
System.out.println(df.format(d));

You can also use BigDecimal class to control the number of decimal places.

or to actually round the value use:

double d = 357.99021;
d = Math.round(d * 100.0) / 100.0; // round to 2 decimal places

theres nothing missing :-D , it shows how to set the number of decimal places for a big decimal.
Creating the BigDecimal is a no brainer (and you've over complicated it anyway)

BigDecimal bd = new BigDecimal(d);

Additionally, the page included a link showing how to create and use a BigDecimal (if needed).
