Does Java Operators precedence is working from C language perspective?

Hello every one!
Actually i am a kickbhut in C.
I just started to learn Java., And directly preparing for OCJP6 Certification.
In Kathy-Sierra book, and as well as in exam syllabus also, there's no Operator's precedence matter.
But i was in fully confused when i saw the Java Operators precedence table from Documentation.

From my C-Language: Operators(44) precedence table

1) () [] .(dot)
2)Unary: ++pre/--pre, -, +, (cast)
3)Arithmetic
4)bitshift
5)relational
6)bitwise
7)logical
8)ternary Operator
9)Assignment operators
10) unary post++/post--





Java Operators precedence table

Operators Precedence
1)postfix expr++ expr--
2)unary ++expr --expr +expr -expr ~ !
3) arithmetic
4)shift << >> >>>
5)relational < > <= >= instanceof
equality == !=
6)bitwise AND &
bitwise exclusive OR ^
bitwise inclusive OR |
7)logical AND &&
logical OR ||
8)ternary ? :
9)assignment = += -= *= /= %= &= ^= |= <<= >>= >>>=





Please some one clarify me!

The "magic" here is in how i++ and ++i work. Both increment i, and both work before the assignment. The difference is that i++ returns the old value of i and ++i returns the new value.

They work a bit like this:

Exactly the same as in C.

I am talking about operators precedence! According to Java operators precedence rule!
post increment and decrement operators having higher precedence then assignment operator.
incrementation has to be done first then assignment has to be done as from my C language operators perspective!

OK, but what does the post-increment operator do? (I presume this is the one you're having problems with)

I suggest you read up on what it was designed to do - in BOTH languages - before you start using exclamation marks on us.

So, do you still have a question about this? It works the same in Java as in C. Did you expect something different? Why?
