A Weird Exception When Using Java’s BigDecimal, java.lang.ArithmeticException: Rounding necessary

I found this weird exception when im trying to convert double values to BigDecimal,

java.lang.ArithmeticException: Rounding necessary
	at java.math.BigDecimal.divideAndRound(BigDecimal.java:1439)
	at java.math.BigDecimal.setScale(BigDecimal.java:2394)
	at java.math.BigDecimal.setScale(BigDecimal.java:2437)

This is my java code

BigDecimal bgAvg = new BigDecimal(0);
bgAvg = bgAvg.add(new BigDecimal(myDoubleValue).setScale(2));

Somehow the error is gone after i changed my code into this

BigDecimal bgAvg = new BigDecimal(0);
bgAvg = bgAvg.add(BigDecimal.valueOf(myDoubleValue).setScale(2));

Hope it helped others, have fun with Java 😉
