i want to know parse xxx() in detail, to me it just assigning value to the declared primitive, the only difference between parse and value of() is that parse works on primitive and valueof() works on Object.
so can anybody tell me then what's the bottom line of having parse, we could have direct assignment.

I think apart from a possible performance issue since autoboxing, there is no reason for both methods to exist.
