Hi Intizam
Integer has been assigned to byte which is narrowing of conversion. But the narrowing of conversion is taking place within the range of byte which is -128 to 127 and hence should work fine.
Hope this explains.

Sandip

Integer LITERALS can be assigned to byte, short and char if the interger LITERALS are within the range of byte, short and char.
100+10=110, 110 is an integer literal and within the range of byte (-128 -- 127), so it can be assigned to byte type variable b.
