Double value changed

Hi experts,

I have strange problem in java. The format value changed. See the below line:
double interFaceFee = (Double.parseDouble("80000000.0"));

Open in new window

I expected the out put to be 80000000.0 as double value but the actual output is 8.0E7 !!
Is this parsing is incorrect or there is better way to parse?

Thanks CEHJ for your response. I need the value to be store in a parameter in this format not to output it to the console.

String val = String.format("%.1f%n", interFaceFee);

CEHJ thanks again for your response but I need the returned value as double.

A double doesn't have a format, it's a number, so that doesn't make any sense. Only strings have formats.
