Those results are correct. If you read the API docs for the relevant classes (Byte, Short, etc) at ( java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/ ), you will see the second argument specifies the base of the first argument. So in the second example you are saying "what is the octal value 012 in decimal?". And you get the correct answer is:

(1*8) +
(2*1)
= 10
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
