As per the Book, long Data Types Range is -9223372036854775808 to 9223372036854775807. Ex. long l = 9223372036854775807.
I got an error message while compiling this above statement.The Error message is : "integer number too large: 922337203685477580"
Why?

To make it a long you need to put an L at the end of the assignment statement:
long l = 9223372036854775807L;
that should take care of it for you. Without the L the compiler thought it was an int.
hope that helps
