Hi,

Wrappers are objects, therefore at the first two Integers i1 and i2 you have created two different objects with the same value. When you compare them as i1==i2, you are comparing the references, not the values. To compare these values use i1.equals(i2).

However, there are exceptions to that rule. When using Short or Integer of values -128 to 128 and Character of values 0 - 127. Also, Byte and Boolean are exceptions.
