What input? If the input is a text, String would be the best way to get it because String can hold a text.
hi devaka..

according to my knowledge... java takes inputs as a string and then converts it into the desired type...for example static void main(String [] args) !!!
You're referring to command-line arguments. That's because java uses the String to hold text.
"Input" is very imprecise. Could you specify what do mean exactly.
because anything and everything you type from a keyboard CAN be represented as a String...but the same isn't really true for other variable types.

That's what I've always thought.
Hi Akhilesh,

Please be specific with your subject...thanks in advance.

If you are passing arguments from the console then they have to be accepted as text(in this case String format).
Even if you type in a number you have to parse the String to the desired format.
