      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Wrong rounding :
                  double value = .0002755d;
              BigDecimal bd = new BigDecimal(value);
              bd = bd.setScale(6, RoundingMode.HALF_UP);
              System.out.println(String.format("%.7f", bd.doubleValue()));
              

      is returning:
      0.0002750
      should be
      0.0002760


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
              double value = .0002755d;
              BigDecimal bd = new BigDecimal(value);
              bd = bd.setScale(6, RoundingMode.HALF_UP);
              System.out.println(String.format("%.7f", bd.doubleValue()));

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      0.0002760
      ACTUAL -
      0.0002750

              System.out.println(String.format("%.7f", bd.doubleValue()));
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------
