In this tutorial we are going to see how to typecast in java. Now we are going to see the syntax and sample code to convert each and every data type into other type.

//Integer code1
public class CastExample
public static void main(String arg[])
String s=”27”;
int i=Integer.parseInt(s);
Float f=99.7f;
int i1=Integer.parseInt(f);

//Integer code2
public class CastExample
public static void main(String arg[])
String s=”27”;
int i=(int)s;

//Integer to String
int a=97;
String s=Integer.toString(a);

String s=””+a;

//Double to String
String s=Double.toString(doublevalue);

//Long to String
String s=Long.toString(longvalue);

//Float to String
String s=Float.toString(floatvalue);

//String to Integer
String s=”7”;
int i=Integer.valueOf(s).intValue();

int i = Integer.parseInt(s);

//String to Double
double a=Double.valueOf(s).doubleValue();

//String to Long
long lng=Long.valueOf(s).longValue();

long lng=Long.parseLong(s);

//String to Float
float f=Float.valueOf(s).floatValue();

//Character to Integer
char c=’9’;
int i=(char)c;

//String to Character
String s=”welcome”;
char c=(char)s;

Float f=99.7f;
int i1=Integer.parseInt(f);
above code will not work,bcz parseint method takes only string as a argument

Design program with given algorithm---

step1:Declare a variable x of type integer and assign it to the value 10
Step 2: Declare a variable y of type double and assign it the value of x.
Step 3: Print the value of y it will show no error itâs called implicit casting.
Step 4: Now, Set the value of y to 13.5
Step 5: Assign value of y to the x. (It raises compilation error because implicit casting doesnât work as explained.)
Step 6: Use explicit casting (narrowing conversion) to assign y to x.
Step 7: print value of x (it gives you round off value y).
Step 8: Define a class named vehicle as a parent class, define a subclass of vehicle as car.
Step 9: create an object x of class vehicle.
Step 10: create an object y of class car.
Step 11: assign y to x (Its upcasting so no compilation error and no explicit casting is required)
Step 12: assign x to y (Its downcasting so it will give u compilation error. So use explicit casting)
