The significant problems we face cannot be solved by the same level of thinking which created them – Einstein SCJP 1.5, SCWCD, SCBCD in the making
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problems: Type mismatch: cannot convert from boolean to Boolean
After fixing the brackets and one's to el's (or vice-versa) boxing does indeed work for me. No need to convert everything to a primitive. Are you sure eclipse is compiling your code under 1.5? Check your preferences->Java->compiler setting.
P.S. There is no output.
