The toString() method wasnt mine i just added the convert to double line and adjusted the proceeding one--- i dont know who originally wrote the code in my company since they dont like to comment (anything).

CharlieMay if you looked at our db you would shoot yourself-- none of the columns make any sense to anything -- headings like a_id, b_id, c_id, a, k-- and so the code is just as dilluted ha

Overall, I avoid the Convert class in general. I think the only use I make of it is converting byte arrays to Base64 strings and back.

I've worked on DBs like that. A DB2 instance on an old I Series AS/400. 8-letter table/column names, with the first two reserved as a "namespace". So...every single identifier was 6 characters. Hundreds of tables and columns. Ugh.
