Example text

Unary operators and assignment operators are evaluated from right to left. Consider this complex expression: a = b += c = -~d This is evaluated as follows: a = (b += (c = -(~d))) As with operator precedence, operator associativity establishes a default order of evaluation for an expression. This default order can be overridden through the use of parentheses. However, the default operator associativity in Java has been chosen to yield a natural expression syntax, and you should rarely need to alter it.

Reference An object or array. 34 | Chapter 2: Java Syntax from the Ground Up Variable A variable or anything else, such as an array element, to which a value can be assigned. Return type The comparison, equality, and Boolean operators always return boolean values. Each assignment operator returns whatever value it assigned, which is of a type compatible with the variable on the left side of the expression. The conditional operator returns the value of its second or third argument (which must both be of the same type).

There are two basic types of conversions. A widening conversion occurs when a value of one type is converted to a wider type—one that has a larger range of legal values. For example, Java performs widening conversions automatically when you assign an int literal to a double variable or a char literal to an int variable. Narrowing conversions are another matter, however. A narrowing conversion occurs when a value is converted to a type that is not wider than it is. Narrowing conver‐ sions are not always safe: it is reasonable to convert the integer value 13 to a byte, for example, but it is not reasonable to convert 13,000 to a byte, because byte can hold only numbers between -128 and 127.
