I'm having a double value
e.g. a)99558669546.

I have to convert these values into String. I need to read the value as-is without any truncation or formatting. For E.g. i do not want 'a'
to be formatted in Exponential format (like E9) and i dont want 'b' to be truncated to 0.001 while converting to String.

How can I achieve this using NumberFormat class or is there any other class through which this can be achieved?

Please do not post the same question to multiple forums. Read this for why I deleted the other copies of your post.

You didn't give us an example of how you want to use this as a string.

Try the docs for System.out.printf().
