How to convert a double value to String in Java?

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The double datatype in Java stores double-precision 64-bit IEEE 754 floating point number. It is used as the default type for decimal value in Java.

Like all other primitive variables double also have a wrapper class (Double) wrapping the primitive datatype. Since java supports autoboxing, the primitive value and the object can be used interchangeably.

Converting double into String

You can convert a double value into String in various different ways in Java −

  • Using the “+” operator − The + operator is an addition operator but when used with Strings it acts as a concatenation operator. It concatenates the other operand to String and returns a String object.

You can convert a double value into a String by simply adding it to an empty String using the “+” operator. In-fact it is the easy way to convert a double value to a String.

Example

import java.util.Scanner;
public class ConversionOfDouble {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("Enter a double value:");
      Double d = sc.nextDouble();
      String result = ""+d;
      System.out.println("The result is: "+result);
   }
}

Output

Enter a double value:
2548.2325
The result is: 2548.2325
  • Using the toString() method of the Double class − The toString() method of the wrapper class Double returns the String format of the current Double object.

Read the required primitive double value in to the Double class reference variable (autoboxing happens) and, convert it into a String using the toString() method.

Example

import java.util.Scanner;
public class ConversionOfDouble {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("Enter a double value:");
      Double d = sc.nextDouble();
      String result = d.toString();
      System.out.println("The result is: "+result);
   }
}

Output

Enter a double value:
2548.2325
The result is: 2548.2325

Or, you can directly pass the double value to the toString() method directly −

public class ConversionOfDouble {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("Enter a double value:");
      double d = sc.nextDouble();
      String result = Double.toString(d);
      System.out.println("The result is: "+result);
   }
}
  • Using the valueOf() method of the String class − The valueOf() method of the String class accepts a char or, char array or, double or, float or, int or, long or an object as a parameter and returns its String representation.

You can pass the required double value as a parameter to this method and retrieve its Sting format.

Example

import java.util.Scanner;
public class ConversionOfDouble {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("Enter a double value:");
      Double d = sc.nextDouble();
      String result = "".valueOf(d);
      System.out.println("The result is: "+result);
   }
}

Output

Enter a double value:
2548.2325
The result is: 2548.2325
  • Using the format() method of the String class − This method accepts a format String and arguments (varargs) and returns a String object of the given variable(s) in the specified format.

You can format a double value into a String using the format() method. To it pass “%f” as the format string (along with the required double value).

Example

import java.util.Scanner;
public class ConversionOfDouble {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("Enter a double value:");
      double d = sc.nextDouble();
      String result = String.format("%f", d);
      System.out.println("The result is: "+result);
   }
}

Output

Enter a double value:
2548.2325
The result is: 2548.2325
  • Using the append() method of StringBuilder or StringBuffer − The append method of the StringBuilder or StringBuffer objects accept a boolean or, char or, char array or, double or, float or, int or, long or, String value as parameter and adds it to the current object.

You can append the required double value to the method and retrieve a String from obtained StringBuffer (or, StringBuilder) objects.

Example

import java.util.Scanner;
public class ConversionOfDouble {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("Enter a double value:");
      double d = sc.nextDouble();
      StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
      sb.append(d);
      String result = sb.toString();
      System.out.println("The result is: "+result);
   }
}

Output

Enter a double value:
2548.2325
The result is: 2548.2325
