Java Data Types

Java is a strongly typed language. Part of java's safety and robustness comes from this fact. You can broadly classify java primitive data types as given below:

Integers

Java defines 4 integer types. These include both positive and negative numbers.

Type Size Reference Example
byte 8 bits byte x,y,z;
short 2 bytes short x;
int 4 bytes int num;
long 8 bytes long millise;

Floating point numbers

Floating point numbers are very useful when we are evaluating expressions that require fractional precisions. Java defines 2 types of floating point numbers, they are float, and double.

Type Size Reference Example
float 4 bytes float percentage;
double 8 bytes double distance;

Characters

In java we store characters by using char data type. Size of character is 2 bytes.

Example:

char a='c';

Booleans

In java we use boolean for logical values, it can represent either true or false.

Example:

boolean isNumber=false;
