    So let us get started with by first understanding what are data types in java, and various types of data types in java.

    Data Types In Java And Its Categories

    Data Types in java are used to store organized data. Your programs are almost built around data types so that you can work effectively and efficiently with the data. The data types in java are categorized into primitive data types and non primitive data types. Now that you understood data types and its categories, let us understand each of its categories in detail, starting with Primitive Data Type in Java.

    Primitive Data Types In Java

    Primitive data types are built in or pre-defined in java, and so you cannot modify their behavior. These are the basic data types including, integer, float, string, and boolean, which contain pure and simple forms of data. There are 8 primitive data types as
    boolean data type in java
    byte data type in java
    char data type in java
    short data type in java
    int data type in java
    long data type in java
    float data type in java
    double data type in java

    Byte data type in java

    This is an 8 bit  or 1 byte signed data type which can store integers lying between -125 and 172. You can use this data type for memory efficiency. Here is a small program in java for demonstrating byte data type.
    // Example java program to demonstrate the byte data type import java.util.*;   class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { byte b1, b2; b1 = 127; System.out.println(b1); // prints 127 b2 = 177; System.out.println(b2); // throws error } }   // Output // error: incompatible types: possible lossy conversion from int to byte
    If you understand byte data type well, let’s move on to the next primitive data type in Java, under integral data types we have char data type in java.

    char data type in java

    This data type can be used to store a single character value, for example, ‘e’, ‘@’, enclosed between single quotes. You can also store the characters with their ASCII value, or one digit numbers as characters.char data type can have a size of 2 bytes.

    Example program for char data type in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the char data type import java.util.*;   public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { char b1, b2, b3, b4; b1 = ‘@’; System.out.println(“character: “+b1); b2 = ‘8’; System.out.println(“one digit number: “+b2); b3 = ‘a’; System.out.println(“alphabet: “+b2); b4 = 67; System.out.println(“ascii value: “+b4); } }
    Output for the above program
    character: @ one digit number: 8 alphabet: 8 ascii value: C
    If you understood char data type well, let’s move on to the next primitive data type in Java,under integral data types we have short data type.

    Short data type in java

    This data type can hold integral numbers from -32,768 to 32,767. The short data type can have a size of 2 bytes or 16 bits. Example program for demonstrating short data type in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the short data type import java.util.*;   public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { short n = 3425; System.out.println(n); // prints 3425 short s = 327678;      // throws an error System.out.println(s); } }   // outputs // error: incompatible types: possible lossy conversion from int to short
    If you understand short data type well, let’s move on to the next primitive data type in Java, under integral data types we have int data type In Java.

    int data type in java

    This data type can store values up to 4 bytes or 32 bits.It can store whole numbers between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647.This data type is usually used for storing numeric values in programs.

    Example program to demonstrate int data type in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the int data type import java.util.*;   public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { int n = 334425; System.out.println(n); // prints 334425 int s = 2147483648;      // throws an error System.out.println(s); } }
    Output for the above program
    error: integer number too large
    If you understood, int data type well, let’s move on to the next primitive data type in Java, under integral data types we have long data type In Java.

    long data type in java

    This data type can have the size of 8 bytes or 64 bits, and can store values between -9,223,372,036,854,775,808 and 9,223,372,036,854,775,807, or numbers from  -263 to 263-1.

    Example program to demonstrate long data type in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the long data type import java.util.*;   public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) {   long l = 15000000680L; System.out.println(l); } }
    Output for the above program
    15000000680
    If you understand short data types well, let’s move on to the next primitive data type in Java, under integral data types we have float data type In Java.

    floating data type in java

    To store decimal or float numbers such as 2.544, 80.7880, you will need to use float data type.

    float data type in java

    This can store fractional numbers with 4 bytes of memory. float data type can have numbers from 3.4e−03 to 3.4e+038, where 3.4e−038 is the smallest positive value of float and 3.4e+038 is the largest positive value of a float. Moreover, the float numbers or the values should end with an ‘f’.Let us look at an example

    Example program to demonstrate float data type in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the float data type import java.util.*;   public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) {   float num1 =67; System.out.println(num1); float num2 =6.7f; System.out.println(num2); float num3 =67.0f; System.out.println(num3); } }
    Output for the above program
    67.0 6.7 67.0
    If you understand float data types well, let’s move on to the next primitive data type in Java, under floating data types we have double data type In Java.

    double data type in java

    This data type can store values or numbers from 1.7e−308 to 1.7e+308, ending with a ‘d’ character, Here is an example Example program to demonstrate double data type in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the double data type import java.util.*;   public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) {   double num = 79.678d; System.out.println(num); double num2 = 79678d; System.out.println(num2); // adding double numbers results in an double value double add = num + num2; System.out.println(add); } }
    Output for the above program
    79.678 79678.0 79757.678

    Now that you understood various primitive data types, let us understand the next categories of data types, Non Primitive Data types In JAva in detail.

    Non primitive data types in Java

    The non primitive data types are also known as reference types since they refer to objects. Strings, Arrays, classes, and interfaces are the examples of non primitive data types. Let us understand each of these non primitive data types briefly.

    Strings in java

    Although all the non primitive data types are defined by the programmer, a String is already defined by java. It is a sequence of collections of elements or characters, joined together and enclosed between double quotes.

    You can refer to string functions in java for understanding all the built in methods for java and string arrays in java for understanding how string and arrays work in java.

    Example program to demonstrate String data type in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the string data type import java.util.*;   public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) {   String greet = “Hello From Atufa”; System.out.println(greet); } }
    Output for the above program
    Hello From Atufa
    If you understood, String in java well, let’s move on to the next non primitive data type Arrays in Java.

    Arrays In java

    Arrays are like lists in java, which can hold more than one value, or as specified at the time of declaration. The elements of the array are homogenous or are of the same data type. Moreover you can traverse through elements of the array by looping, and other operations such as adding, removing, or updating elements of the array can be done on n-dimensional arrays.

    Example program to demonstrate arrays in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the arrays import java.util.*;   public class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { String[][] strArr = { { “Best”, “Java”, “Training” }, { “At”, “FITA”, “Academy” } }; for (int row = 0; row < strArr.length; ++row) { for (int col = 0; col < strArr[row].length; ++col) { System.out.println(strArr[row][col]); } } } }
    Output for the above program

    If you understood, Arrays in Java well, let’s move on to the next non primitive data type Classes in Java.

    Classes In Java

    A class defines the attributes and behavior of an object. For example, if you have an Employee class, it can have attributes like name, salary, and age, whereas its behavior can include functions such as deduct or increment salary or calculate bonus, etc, whereas objects are the instances of classes or derived attributes and behaviors from class with actual data. Functions underclasses are known as methods. They define the behavior of a class.

    The class keyword is prefixed to the class name to define a class. Example program to demonstrate arrays in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the classes import java.util.*; public class Main { int val_1 = 22; int val_2 = 32;   public static void main(String[] args) {   // creating multiple objects for the class main Main obj_1 = new Main(); Main obj_2 = new Main(); System.out.println(obj_1.val_1); System.out.println(obj_2.val_2); } }
    Output for the above program
    22 32
    If you understood, Classes in Java well, let’s move on to the next non primitive data type in Interfaces in Java.

    Interfaces in java

    Interfaces in java are pure abstract classes and also behave like an inheritance. The methods are declared in the base or super class without a definition body.

    The methods are defined in the child class or derived class of the base class with the implement keyword. Let me clear you with an example

    Example program to demonstrate interfaces in java
    // Example java program to demonstrate the interfaces import java.util.*;   // A Java Interface interface Shape {   // Abstract methods (does not have a body) public abstract void area();   public abstract void perimeter();   }   // Subclass (inherit from Shape) class Circle implements Shape { public void area() {   // The body of area() for the circle is provided here System.out.println(“Area of the circle: pi*radius*radius”); }   public void perimeter() {   // The body of perimeter() for the circle is provided here System.out.println(“The perimeter of the circle: 2*pi*radius”); } }   // Subclass (inherit from Shape) class Triangle implements Shape { public void area() {   // The body of area() for the triangle is provided here System.out.println(“Area of the triangle: half*base*height”); }   public void perimeter() {   // The body of area() for the triangle is provided here System.out.println(“The perimeter of the triangle: base+height+side”); } }   class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { Circle crc = new Circle(); // Create a Circle object crc.perimeter(); crc.area(); System.out.println(); Triangle tri = new Triangle(); // Create a Triangle object tri.perimeter(); tri.area();   } }
    Output for the above program
    The perimeter of the circle: 2*pi*radius Area of the circle: pi*radius*radius The perimeter of the triangle: base+height+side Area of the triangle: half*base*height
    Now that you understood the Primitive and Non-Primitive Data Types In Java, it is the time to compare them and see their differences.

    Differences between primitive data type and non-primitive data type of Java

    Non primitive data types are defined by the programmer, whereas primitive data types are built-in in java.
    A non primitive data type can have a null value, but a primitive data type cannot.
    The size of primitive data types is pre-defined and cannot be changed, where as non primitive data types size depends on the type and number of objects.

    This was all about primitive and non primitive data types in java, implementation, and their differences with example programs.
