Java Variables

A variable is a container that holds values that are used in a Java program. In java, all variables must be declared before they are going to be used. The syntax for variable declaration is given below:

type identifier1, identifier2, identifier3;

Here type can be any java primitive datatype or it can be a class or interface. Here identifier is name of the variable.

Example:

int a,b;
char c;
boolean status;

Before using the variable, we need to initialize it. The syntax for initialization is given below:

Example:

a=10;
b=12;
c='a';
status=false;

We can club declaration and initialization into one step as given below:

int a=10,b=12;
char c='a';
boolean status=false;

What is wrapper class?
Everything in java is an object, except primitives. Primitives are int, short, long, boolean, etc. Since they are not objects, they cannot return as objects, and collection of objects. To support this, java provides wrapper classes to move primitives to objects. Some of the wrapper classes are Integer, Long, Boolean, etc.
