Based on advice provided on an earlier post, I am trying to use the
BigDecimal class. However, I`m having a fundamental problem.
In my application class, I have the following:
private static final BigDecimal LSBvalue = (new BigDecimal (180 *
( Math.pow(2, 1 - 15)))).setScale(5, RoundingMode.HALF_UP);
public static int convertToInt(BigDecimal degrees) throws
The simple call below:
BigDecimal AngleDegrees = new BigDecimal(0.9118);
int AngleBams = convertToInt(AngleDegrees);
results in the following exception:
java.lang.ArithmeticException: Non-terminating decimal expansion; no
exact representable decimal result.
I am new to BigDecimal and not sure what I am doing wrong. Can
BigDecimal is exact.
And it seems as you are making a calculation that requires an
infinite number of decimals to represent the result.
Maybe you really want floating point and just have to live
with its behavior.
