3 and 4 are ints. They can't be cast to a Short.

Hi

I guess the first line will compile fine and in the second line you are passing Short object to Short constructor which is not allowed. Look at the API Documentation for Short class.
"
Short(short value)
Constructs a newly allocated Short object that represents the specified short value.
Short(String s)
Constructs a newly allocated Short object that represents the short value indicated by the String parameter."

Regards
Padma

neither of them compile...

it should be:
Short s = new Short((short)3);
Short y = new Short(new Short((short)3));
