In j2se 1.5 autoboxing was introduced which automatically converts the int value "2" to an Integer object in this statement.
Integer first_i = 2;
Integer is a wrapper class that wraps the primitive int value and makes it an Object for use where objects are required such as for use in the interface Comparable or for Collection interface implementations, eg, ArrayList.
For more see The Numbers Classes.
