, I know the data type of the result of an arithmetic calculation depends on the data types of the numbers involved in the calculation. For example,
int + int = int
a. But I can't find any references which can give me all these rules. Could someone help me?
b. How to avoid over flow in arithmetic calculation? For example, the results of 2 long may not fit into a long anymore...
Thanks a lot.

is the most authoritative source on the issue of type conversions in Java.
Java itself does not check integer arithmetic overflows, but I've found this
interesting tool which does so
It is sorta covered in the
JavaRanch Style Guide

why ceil & floor accepts int
does == count as arithmetic calculation?
