Cast Operator in Java
What does Java's type conversion operator () do and how does it work?
The cast operator in Java is employed to convert between various data types.
Programmers use the cast operator to type cast, which is the process of switching from one state to another. The programmer does typecast while creating the program. Narrow Conversion is also referred to as typecasting. Because the requirements of the operations frequently force us to Cast huge datatype items into smaller datatype values. Large datatype values can also be divided into smaller datatype values, which is why Type Casting is sometimes known as Narrow Casting.
Syntax: () is Cast Operator
Type casting is the process of converting a value by one primitive data type to the other.
In Java, there are two types of casting:
byte -> short -> char -> int -> long -> float -> double
double -> float -> long -> int -> char -> short -> byte
Widening casting is carried out automatically when switching from one size type to another:
By adding the type in parentheses ahead of the value, the narrow casting must be done manually:
