Site updates
Testing New System now...

<type> cannot be dereferenced.

This can happen because the basic types aren't objects. Things like the toString() method are part of java.lang.Object, and as such aren't available for the basic types. There are usually workarounds, such as this one:

int i = 8;
String foo = i.toString();


int i = 8;
String foo = i + "";
NOTE: The Java section is mostly in maintenence mode. I don't have time to work on it right now. Errors will be corrected if pointed out, but they are not actively being searched for. Newer site features, like alternate stylesheets, may cause problems with these pages.
