Boolean Literal in java With Examples using NetBeans


A boolean literal has only two values: true or false. This section explains how to write boolean literals in Java programs.

Write true or false to represent a boolean literal in Java.



Note that if you enclose it in double quotations, it becomes a string literal.



Boolean literals are rarely written directly in a program and are used to obtain true or false as a result of comparing the magnitude of two values. For example, the following sample returns true if 20 is greater than 10 and false if 20 and 10 are equal.

System.out.println(20 > 10);   # true

System.out.println(20 == 10);   # false

In some other programming languages, true and 1, and false and 0 are treated as the same value, but in Java true and false are completely different data types from 1 and 0.

How to use Boolean literal in java programming:

Let’s create a simple sample program and try it. After writing the following code in a text editor or any ide, save it as

Open the command prompt and type


Then press the enter, after pressing the enter button simply type java BooleanLiteral, and press the enter button. But in my case I am using the NetBeans ide

package com.mycompany.javabasics;

public class BooleanLiteral {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        System.out.println(20 > 10);

        System.out.println(20 == 10);




Boolean literal

It compares two values ​​to see if they are greater or equal, and as a result, obtains a boolean literal of true or false and outputs it to the screen. (The operators used in this example I will explain in detail in my upcoming article.)
