Class MathContext

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable


    public final class MathContext
    extends Object
    implements Serializable
    Immutable objects which encapsulate the context settings which describe certain rules for numerical operators, such as those implemented by the BigDecimal class.

    The base-independent settings are:

    1. precision: the number of digits to be used for an operation; results are rounded to this precision
    2. roundingMode: a RoundingMode object which specifies the algorithm to be used for rounding.
    Since:
    1.5

    • Constructor Detail

      • MathContext

        public MathContext(int setPrecision)
        Constructs a new MathContext with the specified precision and the HALF_UP rounding mode.
        Parameters:
        setPrecision - The non-negative int precision setting.
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if the setPrecision parameter is less than zero.
      • MathContext

        public MathContext(int setPrecision,
                           RoundingMode setRoundingMode)
        Constructs a new MathContext with a specified precision and rounding mode.
        Parameters:
        setPrecision - The non-negative int precision setting.
        setRoundingMode - The rounding mode to use.
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if the setPrecision parameter is less than zero.
        NullPointerException - if the rounding mode argument is null
      • MathContext

        public MathContext(String val)
        Constructs a new MathContext from a string. The string must be in the same format as that produced by the toString() method.

        An IllegalArgumentException is thrown if the precision section of the string is out of range (< 0) or the string is not in the format created by the toString() method.

        Parameters:
        val - The string to be parsed
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if the precision section is out of range or of incorrect format
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
    • Method Detail

      • getPrecision

        public int getPrecision()
        Returns the precision setting. This value is always non-negative.
        Returns:
        an int which is the value of the precision setting
      • equals

        public boolean equals(Object x)
        Compares this MathContext with the specified Object for equality.
        Overrides:
        equals in class Object
        Parameters:
        x - Object to which this MathContext is to be compared.
        Returns:
        true if and only if the specified Object is a MathContext object which has exactly the same settings as this object
        See Also:
        Object.hashCode(), HashMap
      • toString

        public String toString()
        Returns the string representation of this MathContext. The String returned represents the settings of the MathContext object as two space-delimited words (separated by a single space character, '\u0020', and with no leading or trailing white space), as follows:
        1. The string "precision=", immediately followed by the value of the precision setting as a numeric string as if generated by the Integer.toString method.
        2. The string "roundingMode=", immediately followed by the value of the roundingMode setting as a word. This word will be the same as the name of the corresponding public constant in the RoundingMode enum.

        For example:

         precision=9 roundingMode=HALF_UP
         
        Additional words may be appended to the result of toString in the future if more properties are added to this class.
        Overrides:
        toString in class Object
        Returns:
        a String representing the context settings
