boolean to byte Java

The data type boolean is incompatible for converting into any other data type. That is, a boolean value cannot be converted into any other data type like char, int, double etc. The maximum permitted is one boolean can be assigned to another boolean. That is, boolean to byte is not possible.

Following are not permitted.

  boolean b = true;
  byte x = b;                 // error, boolean to byte

  boolean b = true;
  int x = b;                  // error, boolean to int

  boolean b = true;
  char ch = b;                // error, boolean to char

  char ch = 'A';
  boolean b =ch;              // error, char to boolean

Following is permitted (boolean assignment).

  boolean b = true;
  boolean b1 = b;             // permitted
  System.out.println(b1);     // prints true

The keyword boolean is used in comparison operations.

  int x = 10;
  int y = 20;
  boolean b = (x == y);
  System.out.println(b);      // prints false
Let us write a simple example to see the compiler error message when boolean to byte is casted.
public class Conversions
  public static void main(String args[])
    boolean b1 = true;
    byte b2 = b1;     // error
