My Secret Life as a Spaghetti Coder
home | about | contact | privacy statement
One of my guilty pleasures is reading The Daily WTF?!. I just saw this Java snippet, and wanted to share:

int x = new Integer( 0 ).intValue();

someMethod( new Integer( x ) );

I laughed my ass off when I read it. Then, of course, I had to have a laugh at myself, because I've written code like that. Within the last six months.

I did have an excuse though. For some reason, the compiler was complaining that it couldn't cast an int to an Integer (or vice versa). Then it was saying the opposite within the function. So I had to wrap and unwrap it. The weird thing was it was only giving this error on one machine.

As I recall, we just had to switch a compiler version in Eclipse to fix it. But, I still wrote it.
