Back to Question 20

Answer 19

The name of the primitive type begins with a lower-case letter and the name of the wrapper type begins with an upper-case letter such as double and Double . Note that in some cases, however, that they are not spelled the same. For example, the Integer class is the wrapper for type int .

Back to Question 19

Answer 18

Wrapper classes

Back to Question 18

Answer 17

This has some ramifications as to how variables can be used (passing to methods, returning from methods, etc.) . For example, all variables of primitive types are passed by value to methods meaning that the code in the method only has access to a copy of the variable and does not have the abilityto modify the variable.

Back to Question 17

Answer 16

False. Primitive data types in Java (int, double, etc.) are not true objects.

Back to Question 16

Answer 15

True.

Back to Question 15

Answer 14

False. The char type in Java is a 16-bit Unicode character.

Back to Question 14

Answer 13

  • byte
  • short
  • int
  • long
  • float
  • double
  • char
  • boolean

Back to Question 13

Answer 12

Primitive types contain a single value.

Back to Question 12

Answer 11

Java supports both primitive types and reference (or object) types.

Back to Question 11

Answer 10

In Java, a variable of a specified type is represented exactly the same way regardless of the platform on which the application or applet is being executed.

Back to Question 10

Answer 9

False. In Java, all variables of type int contain signed values.

Back to Question 9

Answer 8

All variables in Java must have a defined type . The definition of the type determines the set of values that can be stored in the variable and theoperations that can be performed on the variable.

Back to Question 8

Answer 7

The syntax is shown in boldface below:

public static void main( String[] args )

In this case, the type of variable declared is an array of type String named args (type String[]) . The purpose of the String array variable in the argument list is to make it possible to capture arguments entered on the commandline.

Back to Question 7

Answer 6

False. Fortunately, Java provides very strict type checking and generally refuses to compile statements with type mismatches.

Back to Question 6

Answer 5

int firstVariable, secondVariable = 10;

Back to Question 5

Answer 4

False: In Java, it is possible to initialize the value of a variable when it is declared, but initialization is not required. (Note however that in some situations, the usage of the variable may require that it be purposely initialized.) .

Back to Question 4

Answer 3

To use a variable, you must notify the compiler of the name and the type of the variable (declare the variable).

Back to Question 3

Answer 2

variable

Back to Question 2

Answer 1

Listing 2 . Listing for Answer 1.
/*File simple4.java This application reads characters from the keyboard untilencountering the # character and echoes each character to the screen. The program terminates when the user entersthe # character. **********************************************************/class simple4 { //define the controlling class public static void main(String[]args) throws java.io.IOException {int ch1 = 0; System.out.println("Enter some text, terminate with #"); while( (ch1 = System.in.read() ) != '#')System.out.print((char)ch1); System.out.println("Goodbye");}//end main }//End simple4 class.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
