Six plus years ago, I wrote an AtomicDouble class. It was done for two reasons. I didn't like that Sun didn't have one in their concurrent atomic package, and I wanted to show that the atomic classes can be use to implement any atomic data structure -- without the need for synchronization.

This was included as part of the examples for O'Reilly. And is the first hit when searched for at Google. Cool.

Anyway, went through some code today, and found that my version is later than the version on the internet. So, for anyone who is interested, here is an update of the class....

Hope this helps,
