1) Formal paramters can be declared as final .

2) A formal parameter is initialized automatically with the value of the actual parameter when the method or the constructor is invoked.

3) Therefore final formal parameter value cannot be changed inside the method’s or the constructor’s body. Continue reading

21) boolean :

boolean is one of the primitive datatype in java that contains either true or false value.

Ex : boolean b=true;

22) Boolean:

Boolean is an wrapper class which wraps a value of primitive type in to Object.Boolean class has many methods to convert Boolean value to Strings and other methods for dealing boolean value.

23) Bootstrap class loader :

This class loader loads java core classes such as java.lang,java.util.It loads the classes from JRE/lib/rt.jar.

24) breakStatement:

A break statement transfers the control .break statement has the following uses:

  1. It terminates the statement in Switch Statement.
  2. It is used to exit loop.When a break statement is used inner loop it only terminates inner loop,outer loop remains unaffected.

25) binarySearch():

binarySearch() method is used to search for a specified value.This method is applied for sortedArrays.

syntax :

static int binarySearch(byte array[ ], byte value)
static int binarySearch(char array[ ], char value)

6) Annotations:

Annotations are meta tags.Annotations allows us to add metadata to classes,methods,fields,packages.Annotations are not part of the code and annotation dont directly impact our code. These meta data can be used by java tools both at compile time at run time.

Annotations have the following uses :

  1. Information for the compiler : Annotations provide information to the compiler to detect errors or surpress warnings.
  2. Compiletime and runtime processing : Annotations provide information to the software tools to generate code,xml files and so forth.

Here are some of the predefined or built in annotations :

1) @deprecated

2) @Override

3) @SupressWarnings

We can create our annotations. Annotations are declared with @. Continue reading
