Type casting in Java

By | July 12, 2020

Type casting in Java:

Automatic, non-explicit change of data type is known as Conversion.

Type casting is of two types.

1. Widening / Implicit / Automatic type casting

2. Narrowing / Explicit / Manual type casting.


1 Implicit type casting:

Variable of smaller capacity can be assigned to another variable of bigger capacity.

byte -> short -> char -> int -> long -> float -> double

2 Explicit type casting:

Whenever a larger data type is converted to smaller type then we have to explicitly specify the type case operator.

double -> float -> long -> int -> char -> short -> byte
