This Java tip illustrates a method of operating with big decimal values in code. Developer may use this in applications which require big calculations and may be operating on big decimal values.

  // Create via a string
    BigDecimal bd1 = new BigDecimal("123456789.0123456890");
    // Create via a long
    BigDecimal bd2 = BigDecimal.valueOf(123L);
    bd1 = bd1.add(bd2);
    bd1 = bd1.multiply(bd2);
    bd1 = bd1.subtract(bd2);
    bd1 = bd1.divide(bd2, BigDecimal.ROUND_UP);
    bd1 = bd1.negate();
