Boolean Data Type

Boolean data types can acquire two values either true or false. We use these data types when we need to track the true/ false condition.

The condition are denoted by these two key words- true(for true condition) & false(for false condition).

Control Statement and Boolean

The  control statements like if, for, while and do all requires boolean value to execute. Generally operators are used to evaluate a condition, which return boolean value. According to this boolean value, the control statements executes.

The given below example will give you a clear idea :

package com.roseindia;

public class BooleanExample {
public static void main(String[] arg) {
boolean bool = true;
System.out.println("Value of bool : " + bool);
if (bool == true) {
System.out.println("Value of boolean is true.");
} else {
System.out.println("Value of boolean is false.");
}
}
}

Comparison Operator

The comparison operator is used to compare the two primitive values. The given below the operator, their name and their output :

Operator Name Output
i < j less than true/false
i<=j less than or equal true/false
i = = j equal true/false
i >= j greater than equal true/false
i > j greater than true/false
i != j not equal true/false

Logical Operators

Given below the logical operator and their meaning :

Operator Name Meaning
a && b and If both a & b are true, the result is true.
a || b or If either a or b are true, the result is true
!a not true when 'a' is false, and false when 'a' is true.
