Have you checked the API documentation for Long?

Have you experimented with your own code?

After doing this, what are your questions?

hi kartik.....here is my hot tip which will help u remember the methods

method name converts to

xxxValue() W P
parseXxxx() S P
valueOf() S W

so the valueOf() method converts a String primitive into a corresponding wrapper

always keep in mind this little 'customized table' of mine

let me know if it helps

heyyyy wait

in above table....

W stands for Wrapper
S stands for a String primitive ( like "1" etc)
P stands for a bare primitive ( like 1,2.0 etc)
