Default How can I do that without float or double ?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to develop my first application (a currency converter) and I've got a little problem as I can't use float or double type on the BB ...
I mean how can I compute for ex
5 / 2
and get 2.5 as answer, what type can I use ?

Thanks in adavance

You could try 500/2 and just move the decimal over when you convert to string....

Ok I've found a MathFP that is supposed to solve the double and float absence problem.
By the way I'm new to J2ME ;)
So I've the 2 jar files into my project and the compilation is ok but when I launch my application I have this error message:
Code:
Starting MyApp
Error starting MyAppxxx58; Module 'jmfp-bin-0.99' not found.
Any clue ?

Thanks in advance

You'll have to include the jar file in the project itself in the JDE.

Cheers,
