I assume that you are talking about the book by K&B.

Boolean and Character both classes have valueOf() methods.
toString is available only for Boolean.

[GS]: toString is available only for Boolean.

No.

You know, the API can easily answer a question like this. Even without the API, you should know that every class inherits toString() from OBject or another superclass, if it doesn't have a toString() of its own.

[KB]: y it was not specified in the book.

Because the book does not necessarily list every method of every class, especially when they are standard methods inherited by all classes.

I wish to win the lottery. I wish for a lovely piece of pie. And I wish for a tiny ad:
