This question is from the SCJP6 book...



I've 2 question

1. Is this possible "(int[]) a[1]" ...or is it just to confuse it.

2. At line 3, why it didn't show that o1 is an array of array not array, why it was shown at the runtime..

If 'a' is a two dimension array (int[][]) then each element is a one dimension array (int[]).
So casting this way is not necessary; yes, just to confuse you. On your second question,
the compiler only knows 'o1' as an Object so it thinks the cast is okay. But at run time the
JVM knows that 'o1' is a 2-d array.
