    Default Object Casting

    How these objects are cast ? like if we have an object of type Object and a class A having object B ; I can write like B = (A) object ... how these fields and functions of objects are wrapped into B ??

    Whole books have been filled trying to explain it, its too large a subject to cover in a forum post. You need a decent book about Java and read it front to back.

    A very good reason to start studying that link; don't you think it isn't just a bit silly to ask questions that can be easily answered by reading? It doesn't make your eyeballs bleed.

    maybe an adapter? I did a little research on adapters a while ago and they are used for incompatible classes to mesh with one another.

    Every now and then I would write a unary function override in c++ for my classes so instead of doing a shallow copy, they would do a deep copy.
