Why are they converting the value Character object has to a String? I tried doing it without converting and it works perfectly. Do they have it there just so they could show more methods from the Character class in the example or is there some advantage to do it like that? [ February 24, 2005: Message edited by: Tom Schuman ]
then the toString() method of someObject is called automagically.... so the result is the same. Some people prefer to call the toString() method themself, some dont... i dont think this will make a difference in the compiled class code.
