Understand all points related to java data type in comparison with c language


Understand all points related to java data type in comparison with c language 

All integer values represented by 4 data types -byte,short,int,long

By default every integer number is considered as int type,it means when we use any integer no. in a program compiler and jvm will consider this number as int type number .

Class Example{
Void m1(byte b) {
void m1(short s) {
void m1(int i) {
void m1(long l) {
Class Test {
public static void main (string[]args) {
Example e1=new example();
byte b=5;
short s=5;
long l=5;


in above program inside main method we called m1 method by passing the argument 5 compiler and jvm will consider this integer value as int type value then compiler and vm will execute m1(int0 hence we got output int-param .

To represent a integer numbers as byte ,short,long type we must prefix/suffix cast operator or a special alphabet .


To represent 50 as byte we must explicitly write below code 

byte b1=50;   -------------variable assignment

(byte)50 --------casting

To represent 50 as short type we must write below code

short s1=50;   -------variabsle assignment

(short)50  ----------casting

To represent integer number 50 as long type we must explicitly write below code  --

long l1=50;   -----------variable assignment

(long)50;    -------cast operator

50l/50L    -------------suffix character

Rule-There is no suffix character to represent integer number as byte and short , we must use as cast operator or, variable assignment as shown in above lines .

In variable assignment we must follow one rule i.e value type and range  must be lesser than variable type range 

for  example  

int i1=5; Right

int i2=5L; Wrong

5 is a int type  ,so allowed to store in int variable .

5L is a long type ,so not allowed to store in int variable .

But we can assign int type value in lessor range datatypes byte and short variables , because these datatypes don't have their own type of special values .
 for example-byte b1=5; right
                      short s1=5; right

Rule- we cant store all integer number in byte and short variables . we can store only the integers which are in the range of byte and short .

byte range is " -128 to 127 "
 short range is "-32,768 to 32,767 "

hence we can store int values in byte and short variables in this range .

byte b2=5000; wrong

short s2=500000; wrong
