Boxing , Unboxing

Converting from a primitive type to its corresponding reference type is boxing conversion and vice versa is unboxing conversion.

Examples are,

  • From primitive boolean to type Boolean
  • From primitive int to type Integer
	int i = 10;
	Integer iObj = new Integer(100);

	iObj = i;//boxing conversion
	i = iObj;//unboxing conversion
