What I would like is a method to convert a double to a string which rounds using the half-up method – i.e. if the decimal to be rounded is 5, it always rounds up to the next number. This is the standard method of rounding most people expect in most situations.
I also would like only significant digits to be displayed – i.e. there should not be any trailing zeroes.
I know one method of doing this is to use the
which is great, however it always displays numbers with 5 decimal places even if they are not significant:
Another method is to use the
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("#.#####"); df.format(0.912385);
However as you can see this uses half-even rounding. That is it will round down if the previous digit is even. What I’d like is this:
0.912385 -> 0.91239 0.912300 -> 0.9123
What is the best way to achieve this in Java?
