i enter value (999999999.99) through java.text.DecimalFormat(#.##), but websphere 3.5.4
through exception(Illegal conversion: java.lang.NumberFormatException: 99999999E8 )
while tomcat 4.0 didn't.
any one have idea how to protect this error.

All I can guess is the JVM you are using with WebShere is being a little more liberal with the internal representation of Decimal values then the JVM for Tomcat. The only thing I can suggest you try is putting the "strictfp" keyword on the class and see if that doesn't help.

I Hope This Helps
