I was wondering if any of you might have come across something like this before.
I'm trying to add key value pairs into a SortedMap, where the key is a Double. The key is usually a number like 0.01042 which has 6 digit precision. SortedMap newMap = new TreeMap(); newMap.put(key, value);
The problem is that when I try to do something like Object key = newMap.getFirstKey(); Double keyDouble = Double.getValue(key); double timeStamp1 = firstKey.doubleValue();
the timeStamp1 value when printed out is only 1 decimal place precision (0.0).
Can anyone suggest anything please ? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
thank you both for replying. Sorry about the line saying "Double keyDouble = Double.getValue(key);" - that was me getting muddled with something.
What I'm trying to do is: Double firstKey = (Double)firstRow.firstKey(); double timeStamp1 = firstKey.doubleValue(); Double secondKey = (Double)secondRow.firstKey(); double timeStamp2 = secondKey.doubleValue(); double interval = timeStamp1 - timeStamp2;
where firstRow and secondRow are 2 separate TreeMaps. Each TreeMap contains a timestamp (key) and a number(value). I want to subtract the timestamps to see if there is a particular interval between them. The problem is that the timestamps should be something like 376222.010420 and 37622.020837 (0.010420 apart).
Thanks again, any suggestions gratefully received.
