Hi,

I have requirement to check following

value1 = "99999999999.00"
value2 = "123122.55";

double d1 = Double.parse(value1) ;
double d2 = Double.parse(value2) ;

if(d1>d2){
sop("Big")
}
else{
sop("small")
}

Expected output is Big but giving me small.

I tried to print their values & its making 9.99999991E something when I use double parse option.

Can someone help me in comparing these big values ?

I've tried the example code you provided (changed parse to parseDouble to make it compile) and it works fine i.e. prints out big.

Is the code you were using exactly like the example you've shown?

I recommend the use of BigDecimal if you are going to be comparing the values of large doubles. It will take a String as a contructor argument and has compareTo or a max method that will provide the functionality you require.
