[SOLVED] Java operator overloading
I have an interesting question to ask. I have seen on a few forums that operator overloading is not possible in Java. So then, why can we use the following?
Integer a = new Integer(1); Integer b = new Integer(2); Integer c = a + b;
Just a strange thing I picked up. Thank you. ;)Eyes dwelling into the past are blind to what lies in the future. Step carefully.

I believe but could be wrong, but operator overloading refers like in C++ where you change what an operator does. In C++ I could make the + really mean multiply or concatenate two strings. Java has no such function other that what is already defined in java.My IP address is 127.0.0.1

Can you explain why my code snippet compiles and runs successfully?

Because I do believe correct me if I'm wrong but Integer can be made into int form in java. They are almost the same to a programmer in many aspects.My IP address is 127.0.0.1

Based on the JavaDoc's first line:
The Integer class wraps a value of the primitive type int in an object. An object of type Integer contains a single field whose type is int.
Integer a = new Integer(1); Integer b = new Integer(2); Integer c = a + b; System.out.println(c);
