Hi there
Can anyone provide some freeware links to know concepts regarding boxing/auto boxing.

P.S: I did search in google but couldnt find a elementary approach of explanation in any website, I was trying to find if there are some sun java documents.

Thanks in advance

It is the automatic conversion between the primitive types and their wrapper classes.

for eg, now you can directly use as follows,

Integer i = 10;

int j = new Integer(10);
