And this is the Java:

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.applet.*;
import java.text.*;
import java.lang.*;

public class App extends Applet {
public void init() {
resize(250, 50);
setLayout(new BorderLayout());
String rateAsString = getParameter("finChg"); // RETRIEVE HTML PARAMETER
double rate = valueOf("getParameter("finChg")"); // CONVERT TO PRIMITIVE FORM ???HOW???
NumberFormat nf = NumberFormat.getPercentInstance();
Label message = new Label("Finance charge: " + nf.format(rate));
message.setAlignment(Label.CENTER);
message.setFont(new Font("SansSerif", Font.BOLD, 18));
add(message, BorderLayout.CENTER);
}
}

double rate = Double.parseDouble(rateAsString);

Note that this throws NumberFormatException.

Hi.
Its simple really.
double rate = (new Double(Double.parseDouble(finChg))).doubleValue()
Convert the String to Double and then convert it back to primitive type.
