It sais the argument on line 18 is a short. But the short is on line 17. (The ebook is correct on this one)

And same typos for outboxing as in the ebook, the wrapper classes start with a capital letter (Boolean, Double)

Jorma,
It's right in the paper book as well. I've lost access to the online test site. (I have a ticket with Sybex to restore it.) Could you post a screenshot of what you see online as the answer for that question?

Hi Jorma Spitz,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

Jorma Spitz wrote:It sais the argument on line 18 is a short. But the short is on line 17. (The ebook is correct on this one)

You are correct! The first sentence of the explanation of the online test should be: "The argument on line 17 is a short.".

It's strange that this typo doesn't occur in the eBook, nor the paper book; but does occur in the online test.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

PS. Have a cow for spotting (and reporting) this typo!

Thanks Jorma. I got my access to the sybex site back and see the same thing as you do. Weird how they took something correct and made it incorrect when putting it online!

I've added it to our errata list. I'll notify the publisher in the future.
