Primitive types are the most basic data types available within theJava language. There are 8: boolean , byte , char , short , int , long , float and double . These types serve as the building blocks of data manipulation in Java. Such types serve only one purpose — containing pure, simple values of a kind.💮💮💮💮💮💮💮💮💮💮💮💮💮


the difference between == and equals in Java is that "==" is used to compare primitives while equals() method is to check equality of objects. String comparison is a common scenario of using both == and equals method.
