Double trouble

I am targeting a jeode VM on ipaq, they say :
Jeode is a JVM that is 100% compatible with PersonalJava 1.2 (roughly the development equivalent is JDK 1.1.8).
I am recieving an error when trying to call Double.parseDouble, the message is :
Exception occurred during event dispatching:
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java.lang.Float: method parseFloat(Ljava/lang/String F not found
It appears that parseDouble is not supported. Anyone know of a workaround for this.

I'm not familar with Jeode, but it sounds like you'll probably need to limit yourself to methods listed in the Java 1.1 API. In this case, try
<pre> double d = Double.valueOf(str).doubleValue();</pre>
