Standard rounding provided by BigDecimal and DecimalFormat rounds to the nearest 0 or 1. If you instead want to round to 0, 1 or 0.5 then you need to do a little work

For example to round up to 4 decimal places to the nearest 0, 1, or .5 you could use the following code.

BigDecimal bd = new BigDecimal((d * 2.0) + 0.0005)
   .setScale(3, BigDecimal.ROUND_HALF_UP);
bd = new BigDecimal(bd.doubleValue()/2.0)
   .setScale(4, BigDecimal.ROUND_HALF_UP);
String rounded = bd.toString();

  1. Amit Says:

    rounding to any fraction f:

    double f = 0.5;
    double rounded = f * Math.round(x/f);
