Hi there,

I just came across an interesting (at least for me) one that i would like to share.


This obviously won't compile:

But this will, as the null will be boxed to Integer, and you will get.. Of course, NumberFormatException at runtime.

Wow, that's amazing. It must be auto-boxing the result, but I would have sworn it wouldn't have compiled!

(I got a NullPointerException though.)
