Hi, I don't understand what's int[], char[].
It's a primitive type array and an object too? so all the object method can apply on it and so does all the Arrays method?

A primitive array is indeed an Object, so you can clone() it, get a hashCode() for it, etc. java.util.Arrays is a separate class; note that all its methods are static. They are handy when working with arrays, but they're not methods you can call on arrays directly.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
