In this post we will discuss about one of the basic  java interview question and question is that Can we cast an int value into byte type variable? what if the value of int is larger than byte?

Yes, we can cast but int is 32 bit long while byte is 8 bit long in java so when you cast an int to byte higher 24 bits are lost and a byte can only hold a value between -128 to 127

Let’s understand above concept using an example

Sample output

125
