Number Class doubleValue() method

  • doubleValue() method is available in java.lang package.
  • doubleValue() method is used to return the value denoted by this Number object converted to type double (by casting) and it may involve in rounding or truncation.
  • doubleValue() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • doubleValue() method does not throw an exception at the time of conversion from Number to double.


    public abstract double doubleValue();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of this method is double, it returns a converted (from type Number to double) value represented by this Number object.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of doubleValue() method of Number class

public class DoubleValueOfNumberClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Variables initialization
        int i1 = 10;
        float f1 = 20.62f;

        // It returns double value denoted by this object
        // and converted to a double by calling i.doubleValue()
        Integer i = new Integer(i1);

        // Display i result
        System.out.println("i.doubleValue(): " + i.doubleValue());

        // It returns double value denoted by this object
        // and converted to a double by calling f.doubleValue()
        Float f = new Float(f1);

        // Display f result
        System.out.println("f.doubleValue(): " + f.doubleValue());


i.doubleValue(): 10.0
f.doubleValue(): 20.6200008392334
