Java: Use DecimalFormat to format doubles and integers but keep integers without a decimal separator

I'm trying to format some numbers in a Java program. The numbers will be both doubles and integers. When handling doubles, I want to keep only two decimal points but when handling integers I want the program to keep them unaffected. In other words:

Doubles - Input

14.0184849945


Doubles - Output

14.01


Integers - Input

13


Integers - Output

13 (not 13.00)


Is there a way to implement this in the same DecimalFormat instance? My code is the following, so far:

DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("#,###,##0.00");
DecimalFormatSymbols otherSymbols = new DecimalFormatSymbols(Locale.ENGLISH);
otherSymbols.setDecimalSeparator('.');
otherSymbols.setGroupingSeparator(',');
df.setDecimalFormatSymbols(otherSymbols);

Answer

You can just set the minimumFractionDigits to 0. Like this:

public class Test {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println(format(14.0184849945)); // prints '14.01'
        System.out.println(format(13)); // prints '13'
        System.out.println(format(3.5)); // prints '3.5'
        System.out.println(format(3.138136)); // prints '3.13'
    }

    public static String format(Number n) {
        NumberFormat format = DecimalFormat.getInstance();
        format.setRoundingMode(RoundingMode.FLOOR);
        format.setMinimumFractionDigits(0);
        format.setMaximumFractionDigits(2);
        return format.format(n);
    }

}
