I am adding two BigDecimal numbers and storing the result in variable declared(var object) inside Java Script.The addition result can be as large as 999999999999999999.99.But such large value is not getting stored properly in JavaScript variable,it gets rounded off.Is there a way to store numbers of precision(18,2) in JavaScript variables?

There is no BigDecimal in JavaScript. That's a Java class.
