Type Promotion Rules in Java

The Type Promotion Rules
Java defines several type promotion rules that apply to expressions. They are as follows: First, all byte, short, and char values are promoted to int, as just described. Then, if one operand is a long, the whole expression is promoted to long. If one operand is a float, the entire expression is promoted to float. If any of the operands is double, the result is double.


class Promote {
public static void main(String args[]) {
byte b = 42;
char c = 'a';
short s = 1024;
int i = 50000;
float f = 5.67f;
double d = .1234;
double result = (f * b) + (i / c) - (d * s);
System.out.println((f * b) + " + " + (i / c) + " - " + (d * s));
System.out.println("result =" + result);
}
}
