Autoboxing/Unboxing in J2SE 1.5

Before J2SE 1.5, Java had primtive data types with wrappers around them, so programmers had to convert from one type to another manually:

public void manualConversion() {
int a = 12;
Integer b = Integer.valueOf(a);
int c = b.intValue();
}
// --------------------------
Thankfully, J2SE 1.5 comes with a feature called Autoboxing and Unboxing. This eliminates the pain of manual conversion between primitives and wrappers. Behind the scenes, the compiler creates code to implicitly create objects for you:

public void autoBoxing() {
int a = 12;
Integer b = a;
int c = b;
}
// -------------------------
Remember: Boxing and unboxing too many values can make your garbage collector go mad.
