import java.util.Random;
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
public class Main
    public static void main(String[] args)
        String input;
      Random generator = new Random();
 int num;
  num = generator.nextInt(100);
int value;
     input = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Please enter a number of your choice");
  //  value = Double.parseDouble(input);
     value = Integer.parseInt(input);
     JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "The First random number picked was " + (value));

You can do an inline IF here:

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "The larger of the two numbers " + value + " and " + num + " is " + ((value > num)?value:num));
