Class BooleanUtils

java.lang.Object
  extended byorg.apache.commons.lang.BooleanUtils

public class BooleanUtils
extends java.lang.Object

Operations on boolean primitives and Boolean objects.

This class tries to handle null input gracefully. An exception will not be thrown for a null input. Each method documents its behaviour in more detail.

Constructor Detail

BooleanUtils

public BooleanUtils()

BooleanUtils instances should NOT be constructed in standard programming. Instead, the class should be used as BooleanUtils.toBooleanObject(true);.

This constructor is public to permit tools that require a JavaBean instance to operate.
