The important thing is to consider all edge cases while thinking this problem through, including: negative integer, possible overflow, etc.

Use HashMap to store a remainder and its associated index while doing the division so that whenever a same remainder comes up, we know there is a repeating fractional part.

Please comment if you see something wrong or can be improved. Cheers!

```
public class Solution {
public String fractionToDecimal(int numerator, int denominator) {
if (numerator == 0) {
return "0";
}
StringBuilder res = new StringBuilder();
// "+" or "-"
res.append(((numerator > 0) ^ (denominator > 0)) ? "-" : "");
long num = Math.abs((long)numerator);
long den = Math.abs((long)denominator);
// integral part
res.append(num / den);
num %= den;
if (num == 0) {
return res.toString();
}
// fractional part
res.append(".");
HashMap<Long, Integer> map = new HashMap<Long, Integer>();
map.put(num, res.length());
while (num != 0) {
num *= 10;
res.append(num / den);
num %= den;
if (map.containsKey(num)) {
int index = map.get(num);
res.insert(index, "(");
res.append(")");
break;
}
else {
map.put(num, res.length());
}
}
return res.toString();
}
}
