Actually in my code, floatValue of BigDecimal was taken. for bigger numbers onwards 17548097, it starts losing its precision and starts giving a difference of value 1. So thats why now i decided to take the doubleValue of BigDecimal.

I am just doing this test :

but the output i do get is in exponential form. I want to change it into simple number. How is it this possible ?

Looks like this is the correct choice to be followed:

I checked using this code, Double value do not precision up to Double.MAX_VALUE
but when i do see this value Double.MAX_VALUE, it comes up in exponential format.

need to change the exponential format number into number represented without exponential format .

you want a simple number that's over 300 places long?

if so, you could always use the toPlainString() method of big decimal:
