## float and double can only be used for scientific calculation or engineering calculation. In business calculation, we need to use java.math.BigDecimal . I heard that a colleague said that a friend of his had been used by hackers because he used double to calculate money, resulting in a lot of losses. Let's talk about this.

brief introduction

The simple floating-point type float and double in Java can't be operated, or the precision of the operation will be lost, not only in Java, but also in many other programming languages. In most cases, the calculation results are accurate. Float and double can only be used for scientific calculation or engineering calculation. In business calculation, we need to use java.math.BigDecimal .

BigDecimal

BigDecimal has a variety of constructors, two of which are commonly used. One of them is not recommended, that is, double construction and String construction.

Tools

Since the construction method uses the construction method corresponding to String, if we want to do an addition operation, we need to first convert two floating-point numbers to String, and then make BigDecimal. Call the add method on one of them, pass in another as a parameter, and then convert the result of the operation (BigDecimal) to floating-point numbers. Can you stand such a cumbersome process? Next, we provide a tool class to simplify the operation.
