Java and .NET Double data type Issues

Sometime ago I have created a static jax-rpc client, a standalone
multithreaded java application that
talks to .NET web service.
Right now, I am extending it to accept the data defined in WSDL file as
a double datatype (.NET double).
Frequently for those values java would display a NaN, or a reduced
number (4E+5 instead of 4E+8)
or even different number. I gather that the problem lies with the
different representations of the double float data type.
I need to say that I did not research this problem fully and was hoping
for a quick solution from someone who
is familiar with this problem, if there is a problem!?
Thanks, Leo
