Can anybody help me to sort this out please.

Object p=pList.getCap(); //either this
String s=pList.getCap(); //or this

//here I need to cast the Object or String (any will do) into double
//to send it as an argument to coldDrinks(int, double) method

other class
Object/String getCap()

other class
coldDrinks(int, double)

Thanks in advance.

Well, the question is, what does getCap() actually return? Is it a String? If so, look at the static parseDouble() method in the java.lang.Double class.
