What does it mean when somebody says "you can accomplish this by writing a wrapper class". I believe a wrapper class is something that converts from primitive to references/objects.

why is it called wrapper class? how do you define the word wrapper class... wrapper means?

FOLDOC's definition.

The Java classes, such as java.lang.Integer, for holding primitive data are correctly called "wrappers". However, they are not the only thing that can correctly by called a "wrapper". Jay-Z is not involved, however.
