What do I have to do to convert from primitive int to Integer types? I have this statement and it's always returning zeroes. Integer value; value = new Integer ( (int) Math.random() * 100); yet, value is always zero. What am I doing wrong here? This worked when I stored it back into an int array but not when I convert it to type Integer. Hashtable needs it to be in type Integer. Please send help. Thanks.

Howdy -- I think you just need to add the parens, so that you have: (int) (Math.random() * 100); Rather than: (int) Math.random() * 100; Without the parens around the whole thing, the (int) cast applies ONLY to the Math.random(), which -- as Barry said -- always returns an int value of 0. Then you are simply multiplying 100 x 0 each time. So you want the cast to apply to the whole expression, rather than just the return value of random(). cheers Kathy
