This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
I am assuming that you are using Java 1.5, which is why "Boolean b4 = true" works. Java 1.5 introduced an autoboxing feature which converts between primative types and their object counterparts automatically.
Hey there, when you study for the exam, and wish to try out codes, please make sure you are using the 1.4 compiler. As mentioned, Boolean something = false works because version 1.5 introduces an autoboxing feature. But in 1.4, this is a compilation error. So please pay special attention to this, else you may study the wrong thing.
